    Just wanted to applaud the state legislators for passing the hunting apprentice program. I always said this would be a good idea. I have lots of friends that want to go out and try to hunt but can't due to license issues. Hopefully this will get more people involved with our sport!

    great idea
    This is good news. Hopefully it will get more people who have an interest involved. I wish there were more hunter education classes offered in more areas. When I took the class it was hard to find one in my area,and then the times are limited and the classes fill up quick. But your right,this is a good thing .

    I Like it But....
    Good idea if.... The person stays under the watchful eye of the experienced hunter...When I read it I didn't even see a age restriction? What if a someones Son wanted to bring his buddy from the city and in the heat of the excitement a accident happens because the new kid wasn't properly trained? I like the idea but I still say everyone should take a hunter Safety course before handling a firearm of any kind.
