The Novice Youth Deer Hunt is an opportunity for youth, ages 12-18, that have either no or very little deer hunting experience to learn about deer and deer hunting and participate in a deer hunt with a non-hunting adult companion on the Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge. In the morning, hunters and companions will participate in a two-hour classroom session to learn about deer biology, hunting techniques, and firearm and treestand safety. After a hearty lunch (provided), hunters will take to the field, with their companions, and hunt deer. Each youth may take one deer of either sex. To register for this great opportunity, submit a registration form (see link above) and a copy of the youth's Hunter Education Certificate (or Apprentice License) by C.O.B. October 10, 2014 to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, 4010 West Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23230 Attention: Occoquan Bay NWR Youth Hunt. Participation is limited to 21 hunters. Because this is a novice youth hunt, applicants will be selected based on deer hunting experience (3 years or less). Qualified applicants will be randomly selected and notified by October 31, 2014.
