Tri-County Fish & Wildlife Area will host a youth rabbit hunt on Saturday, Oct. 19.
The hunt is from 8 a.m. to noon. Children will be partnered with an experienced hunter, and various beagle dog handlers will guide the youth hunters as they trail rabbits through fields and woods.
If your child is interested in participating, or for more information, contact Don LeCount at (574) 551-1461 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Tri-County FWA at (574) 834-4461.
Eligible hunters are youths age 17 or younger on Oct. 19. Participants must possess a valid Indiana resident youth hunting license. Non-resident youths may participate but must possess a valid non-resident Indiana youth hunting license.
Spaces are limited. Interested youths must register by calling Tri-County FWA between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The registration deadline is Oct. 16.
If the number of registered youths exceeds space, Tri-County will draw to select hunters.
Parents or other adults may accompany children on the hunt, but cannot hunt. Having an accompanying parent or adult is not required.
Each child is allowed to bring a shotgun as long as it is unloaded, cased and in good working order.
Shotguns and ammunition can be provided for those who do not have them.
