September 8 Is Youth Waterfowl Day in Minnesota
This Saturday, September 8, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is hosting another great opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors with kids.
Saturday's Youth Waterfowl Day means that youth, ages 15 and younger, can go waterfowl hunting when accompanied by an adult who is not hunting.
According to the DNR, during Youth Waterfowl Day hunters ages 15 and younger may take regular season bag limits of ducks, and five Canada geese statewide, when accompanied by an adult 18 or older who is not hunting. The accompanying adult does not need a license.
Hunters, ages 13 to 15, must have a firearms safety certificate or apprentice hunter validation in their possession. Ducks, Canada geese, mergansers, coots and moorhens may be taken from a half-hour before sunrise to 4 p.m. Motorized decoys may not be used. All other migratory bird hunting regulations apply.
