There were 18 youth moose permits last year for 1800 applicants which means 99% of the applicants didnít draw. I donít buy the argument that eliminating the 18 youth moose permits will have a significant impact on youth hunting. There are hundreds of youth deer permits, and most are relatively easy to draw. The last few years the Seattle Puget Sound chapter of Safari Club has sponsored a free youth deer hunt for ten youth hunters, and the number of applicants is usually less than 30. Why is that?

Take a youth upland bird hunting or waterfowl hunting where theyíll shoot more than once. Teach them that hunting is much more than simply harvesting an animal. I started elk hunting with my dad when I was 12, and didnít shoot an elk for more than 15 years of hunting with him but I have nothing but fond memories of those

And there isnít an ďAdult Moose permitĒ category; anyone with a hunting license can apply including a youth.

Iíll a big advocate of youth hunters, but this isnít the issue to make much progress with.
