-- New Hampshire's youth deer weekend Oct. 24-25 gives young people a chance to go deer hunting with an adult mentor without competing with adult hunters. Accompanying adults must be licensed hunters and are not allowed to carry a firearm so they can devote their time to coaching their young companions.
Nonresident youth may participate in New Hampshire's youth deer weekend only if their state of residence allows New Hampshire youth to participate in its youth deer hunt.
New Hampshire has offered a special youth deer hunt since 1999. The state also offers youth weekends for waterfowl hunting in the early fall and for turkey in the spring. For more about New Hampshire's youth deer hunting weekend, visit http://www.huntnh.com/Hunting/Youth_deer_wknd.htm.
In 2008, young hunters took 341 deer during the youth weekend, with deer taken in all 18 of New Hampshire's Wildlife Management Units.
