squirrel/rabbit hunting

Are a friend and I (both 17) aloud to hunt in sgl with 20 gauges for squirrel and rabbit alone? We both have our adult licenses. Any tips and tricks welcome from the pros here.

If your ever stressed just take a day off and go fishing.

Yes, you can hunt on your own at 16.

Re: squirrel/rabbit hunting

heck yeah, get out there. spend as much time as you can out there, if nothing else you'll witness some pretty incredible things most people never get to see.

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog.

ch..ch..ch..*click*..BOOM

How in the World is This Confusing?????

Quote:
Junior Licenses and Hunters: Persons under 17
years of age must have their parent or legal
guardian’s approval to purchase a general hunting,
combination or furtaker license. Persons who
turn 17 after purchasing a Junior License can still
hunt that year with the Junior License. 11-yearolds
who have successfully completed a required
Hunter-Trapper Education course may apply for
a Junior License if they will be 12 years old by
June 30 of the license year. They may not lawfully
hunt with the license prior to their 12th birthday.
Persons 12 and 13 must be accompanied by
an adult member of the family (at least 18), or by
an adult serving in place of a parent. Persons 14
and 15 must be accompanied by any adult 18 or
older. 16-year-olds may hunt alone. The use of
portable radios does not satisfy the requirement
of accompanying a junior hunter. The accompanying
adult must be close enough to give verbal
instructions without using an electronic device.

Because it doesn't say anything about 17 year olds?
