Mentored Youth- October 26?

October 26 is opening day for Pheasant. It also states that is the final day of the Special Firearms season which includes Mentored Youth. Can I Pheasant hunt with a shotgun but also carry some rifled slugs for my Mentored Youth daughter if she’s tagging along with me and we see a deer? We would have one shotgun between the two of us.

I'm pretty sure you may not carry slugs while small game hunting and you may not carry birdshot while deer hunting.

Also, kids have different levels of capabilities but an eleven or under shooting slugs out of a, presumably, wingshooting gun sounds like a recipe for trouble.

Figure out what's best for your family.
