Entry Description
Salamonie Lake and the Indiana Beaglers Alliance will host a youth rabbit hunt Oct. 27.

The hunt will start at 7 a.m. at the Salamonie Interpretive Center. Hunters will be in the field until noon. A free lunch will be provided for the youth hunters, adult mentors and dog handlers. A wildlife cleaning instructional session will follow 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 also 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, which is required for obtaining an Indiana Youth Hunting License, but not required for an Apprentice License.

Information on upcoming Hunter Education Courses is available at dnr.IN.gov/dnr/lawenfor/4812.htm.

Youth Hunting Licenses are $7 and will be available at the interpretive center the morning of the hunt. Hunting licenses are also available at IndianaOutdoor.IN.gov.

Participants must register by Oct. 23 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 youths who do not have one. Those that need a shotgun should request one when registering.

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

The Salamonie Interpretive Center is in Lost Bridge West State Recreation Area, west of State Road 105 in Huntington County.
