Youth Deer Hunting Day returns

Young people statewide will get a chance to bring home a deer with Youth Deer Hunting Day Saturday, Sept. 23.

On this day, youth 17 and younger may use any legal weapon to hunt deer of either sex. Youth who have not completed a hunter education course must be accompanied by an adult.

Hunters 18 and older with a valid hunting license may use only the weapon that is legal for the type of season open in their county on this day. Dogs may not be used for deer hunting on Youth Hunting Day. All hunters must wear blaze orange on Sept. 23, including archers.

Youth Deer Hunting Day coincides with National Hunting and Fishing Day. It was established in 2015 to increase interest in deer hunting and increase hunting success among young people.

 

Celebrate hunting and fishing

A celebration of National Hunting and Fishing Day will offer activities and exhibits for all ages, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23, at the Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education in Brevard.

Participants will get to try their hand at fly-casting, fly-tying and shooting on a pellet range. Other activities include a backyard bass game, the Huntmaster blind and trout cooking over an open fire. The event is one of six statewide events celebrating the day.
