    I'm pretty sure in Wyoming big game is 12. Most states are 12.

    Well that sucks for them. And I hate that they didn't get in on it. And applaud them for reading the rules (the parents obviously). I just could totally see how a majority of the "rule breakers" did so by mistake. If I'm understanding it correctly.

    Rules and laws are still supposed to be followed right? Meth is still illegal right.

    I'm sorry this is on the parents. Those 1000 kids screwed the draw odds and it's hard enough to draw a tag there as it is not to mention expensive especially for non residents. And before you say it doesn't those extra applicants do sway the non resident tags

    Those parents will have to explain to those kids why their tags were taken away

    Or how do the parents of those who followed the rules explain to their ten year old why he didn't put in to draw when their friend at school has a tag

    I don't think KY does either. I was hunting deer way before 10 years of age. And my soon to be 6 year old is begging me to take her this fall. I took my cousin when he turned 9. Its all about how mature they are in nature. I've met some 14+ year olds that shouldn't be hunting haha.

    BTW....here was my cousin at 10 years old. He's now 20 and in college. Turned out to be a great kid, he no longer hunts though. Has other things on his mind at the moment lol! Good ole muzzleloader buck!!

    No minimum age in Illinois -- if you can pass the hunter safety course, you can hunt.

    Using meth as an example is a little bit absurd. As far as the minimum age of 10 being a little bit young, I disagree. A 10 year old can shoot a deer with a .243 as well as a 12 year old. Regarding the tags it is water under the bridge at this point. I agree with having a second draw but lets not punish kids for someones mistakes. There dads already told them they have tags and are going hunting so don't go back on that. They are the ones that will be keeping this thing alive after we can't any more.

    Meth is illegal but not much is done about these applications were illegal and nothing is being done about

    No one is arguing if the kids are old enough or not that has already been determined

    There's 15 minutes of my life I'll never get back

    Fairly engaging conversation but in the end the lady basically told me they may issue "warnings" in written form but that's about it

    What a joke

    I asked if they could or would consider having those tags that were drawn put into the second draw and then she started getting more defensive and basically said what's done is done

    I still believe there are people who tried to game the system probably just as many who were ignorant to the rule.

    One thing I didn't know was that in the past you could apply at age 11 as long as you would be 12 when the hunt opened you applied for so in a sense if people had followed the rules of this year some kids kind of got jobbed

    Supposedly total apps are up 7000 according to her numbers and 900+ were illegal. 140k some odd apps now 900 into 140k isn't a high percentage. But it only takes a few of those names to bump you down the list just enough to not get a tag

    Keep calling and voicing your displeasure this is wrong
