Hunter Heritage Bill Passed, Now let’s hammer it home!

On May 3, the House Natural Resources, Tourism and Outdoor Recreation Committee passed Senate Bill 207. Sponsored by state Senator Joseph Hune (R-22), SB 207 would establish a mentored youth hunting program allowing parents to determine at which age their children are ready to hunt.

 Also known as the  Hunter Heritage Bill, SB 207 would not negatively impact Hunter Safety nor would it degrade existing requirements. Michigan ranks last in the nation when it comes to the recruitment and retention of hunters, and SB 207 could improve Michigan’s status. Senate Bill 207 is modeled after a Pennsylvania law that has succeeded in getting tens of thousands of youth involved in hunting with a mentor while learning proper safety and ethics at a young age.

Please contact your state Representative today and urge him or her to SUPPORT SB 207. Contact information for your state Representative can be found here.
