One of the most popular hunting times of the year is the youth season for deer that begins this Saturday, the 21st. While the season ends on October 6th, unfilled youth tags can carry over to the early or late muzzleloader, or one of the two shotgun seasons, as long as the proper firearm is used. Marion County conservationist Ken Kenyon says that they assume that there is a mentor out with the youth hunters, and they want them to have an opportunity to go back out and fill the tag if they struggle to do so during the youth deer season. Kenyon adds that you can not use the youth deer tag to go party hunting.
