Youth Deer Hunt

2020 Youth Deer Hunt to be held Dec. 4-6, 2020. In light of the ongoing pandemic and the need for us to stay within the guidelines put forth by the CDC in regards to gatherings and social distancing, we will be changing the format of our youth deer hunt this fall. Instead of having a mentored youth hunt, we will be taking applications for youth 12-17 years of age to attend a youth hunt with a licensed guardian. This hunt will take place on the St Marks Unit of the refuge in the same location that the guided youth hunt generally takes place. For all the details and information, you can click on the link for rules and regulations for this hunt. Applications must be submitted by 11 pm on Nov 1, 2020; drawing will take place and participants will be notified on Nov. 3, 2020. Those chosen will have 24 hours to respond and then we will go to another applicant, so make sure the number you put on the application is one you can be reached with. For questions on this hunt call (850)251-8525
