Entry Description
A youth rabbit hunt is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 26, at Salamonie Lake.

The event is sponsored by the Indiana Beaglers Alliance.

The hunt will start at 7 a.m. at the Salamonie Visitors Center. Hunters will be in the field until noon. Lunch will be provided. A wildlife cleaning instructional session will be available after the hunt.

The hunt is for youths between 11 and 17 years old. Each youth will have a private mentor to supervise and assist him or her. Parents are encouraged to accompany the youth, but it’s not mandatory.

Youth participants may hunt on either a valid Indiana youth hunting license or apprentice license. All youth participants are encouraged to have attended and passed a Hunter Education Course. Information on upcoming courses is at dnr.IN.gov/lawenfor/4812.htm.

Participants must register by Oct. 22 by calling Jack Hyden at (574) 551-4067 or Don LeCount at (574) 551-1461.

Youth hunters should bring a hunter-orange hat and vest if possible. Shotguns will be provided for youth who do not have one. Those that need a shotgun should request one when registering.

Adults wishing to volunteer as dog handlers or mentors also must register in advance.

The event and meal are free for all participants. Youth hunting licenses cost $7 and will be available at the Salamonie Visitors Center the morning of the hunt. Youths purchasing a license that morning must furnish a birth date and Social Security number upon request. Hunting licenses also are available at IndianaOutdoor.IN.gov.

Salamonie Lake (stateparks.IN.gov/2952.htm) is at 9214 West-Lost Bridge West, Andrews, 46702.
