Proposed regulation is to only allow the child to hunt on sign in hunts. I think participation will drop. I know some people take advantage of these hunts but even if the child is only tagging along he/she is still exposed to hunting and that is a good thing. Take the time to submit a comment on the DNR website if you disagree also. Also they are taking the ban off of buckshot on WMA's. I don't think that's a good idea for safety reasons either.
