The NRC is going to change the youth weekend from the 2nd Saturday in September to the 3rd Saturday in September, according to Russ Mason who is quoted in the Michigan Outdoor News saying “In the past, it’s been the second week in September, and that aligns with the youth deer hunt. Some parents had to make a choice. Now they can do both, and the waterfowl hunting will be better on the third weekend anyhow.” The problem is he’s wrong. The liberty youth deer hunt is “the Saturday following September 15th”. In the past, it’s not possible for a conflict. Now there will be likely a conflict every year, starting 2019. 2018 works out ok with sept 1 on a Saturday.
