Hunting is an excellent way to spend quality time with friends and family in the great outdoors. It is an honored tradition passed on from one generation to the next. Most hunters receive their first introduction to hunting from family; others are introduced by friends. Still there are some who would like to learn more about hunting but need additional guidance. The Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center is proud to work with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Youth Hunting Program of Florida. The Youth Hunting Program of Florida sponsors introductory, instructive youth hunts that teach youth, and their accompanying adult, how to hunt safely, legally and ethically.
To join the Youth Hunting Program, you must first complete the hunter safety program and be 12 to 17 years old. Print the attached brochure, complete the application and submit it to the address listed on the form. As hunting opportunities become available, enrolled youth are contacted and encouraged to participate in a safe, fun, educational hunt.
