Youth-Only Spring Javelina
Hi, guys, I had a quick question I was hoping you might be able to help with. I'm planning on hunting Javelina's this spring with my two boys ages 9 & 11. I live Ft. Collins CO, so will be buying non-res tags. I believe only the 11-year-old can hunt? Both have their hunter safety cards but it sounds like you need to be 10-years old?
My biggest question at this point is there any way for us to hunt during the same time period with them purchasing the Youth-only tag? I'm a big archery guy and would typically be looking at the archery-only tag so figuring out how to get the little guys in the field is a little tricky.
I'd take any advice you might have for me, never hunted these critters before but have always wanted to do so. I'd also like to camp in a desert type environment, if possible, as I think they'd enjoy the experience all that much more.
Thanks in advance!
You're right, the 9yo cant hunt yet however your 11yo can. Check out the draw results from the last couple years. There are a few units that have leftover tags and even though he is a junior, he can still put in for the archery hunt with you so you can both be hunting together instead of doing 2 separate hunts.
Thanks Chuckster, do you have a link to the draw results? I've been looking but can't seem to find it.
