This question should be worded different, I support APR's either way, but prefer that the youth hunters would have to follow the same restrictions as everyone else. They will still get the first crack at the best bucks for what is it, 4 or 6 years, whatever that's plenty of advantage. The youth hunters seem to do just fine in DMU 045 here.

Currently, youth are exempted from APR's during the youth season but have to honor them during the regular seasons. Youth also can purchase an over-the-counter antlerless permit, even in DMU's where antlerless permits are done by lottery. This seems to me like a reasonable compromise, let youth shoot any sized buck during the youth season and guarantee them the opportunity to harvest a doe with a firearm if they want to. I would be open to tweaking the definition of "youth" slightly, like maybe just 14 and under but that fodder for another discussion.

Munster,

Correct me if I wrong, as I know you will:lol:. But, the last I heard, youths were subject to the same APR's as everyone else durring both seasons. I thought the confusion about the youth hunt and restrictions was straightened out, and the DNR stated that the 2010 guide was misprinted. That is what the last newspaper article(Enterprise had stated).
