Is it time for Vermont's Apprentice hunting effort?
From the NSSF Bullet Points:
ARIZONA OFFERS APPRENTICE HUNTING LICENSE AT NO CHARGE . . . Effective Jan. 1, the Arizona Game and Fish Department is offering a new apprentice hunting license at no charge to encourage existing hunters to become mentors and introduce a friend, neighbor, relative At the 2006 Future of Hunting in Vermont conference in Castleton we agreed to move forward with an apprentice hunting license so people of all ages could "try" hunting under the direct supervision of a licensed adult hunter. So far there has been no action.
It seems to me the time is now. We need more support for hunting and we need more new hunters for their political and financial support. What are we waiting for Vermont?
