Not sure if the folks around here are aware, but it's a done deal! Indiana will see it's FIRST EVER youth deer hunt in 2006. Tentitive plans call for a "any legal weapon" antlerless only youth deer hunt the last weekend of September, 2006. I have access to two properties that will not allow the harvest of antlerless deer, as the owner thinks the deer population on these lands is too low to be killing doe deer. I understand the importance of harvesting antlerless deer on properties where deer densities are high. BUT...do we really want kids to get caught up in all the "management" brew-haa? Shouldnt kids just concentrate on hunting SAFELY? and not worry too much about buck to doe ratios? Isn't there ALOT we need to teach these kids BEFORE we introduce them to *MANAGEMENT*? My hat is off to the state for FINALLY realizing that kids are the future of hunting, but making the yoth deer hunt antlerless ONLY is sending the wrong message!
