My grandson didn't start turkey hunting until he was 10 and he took his first turkey that year and one at 11,but for some reason he doesn't want to go this year.....go figure ! Grandpa had already bought his Youth Sportsmen license,but no way would I use that tag to kill a turkey for him. I'm still trying to figure out why he doesn't want to go. Now we all know that some will take advantage to break the law even it means using their kids and posting pictures all over the place. If you do that and bait for turkey your not a hunter your a killer. I have no problem with youth season to get them interested . I'm afraid that hunting numbers will decrease and I don't want that to happen. Thats what has me puzzled about my grandson ......I saw his face when he killed those first two and I thought he was hooked....I believe the reason is ....none of his friends hunt and are only interested in Xbox and PS4. To be honest it hurt grandpa a little bit when he didn't want to go....hopefully during the regular season he will come around .
