Can I put my ten year old son in for controlled hunts even though the law change doesn't take affect until July 2014?

Answer:

The controlled hunt application rules will remain as they are under current legislation for trophy and the first big game drawings this year (2014). In other words, kids who are 10 cannot apply for big game hunts in April, May or June. When the law changes on July 1, 2014, that will change and kids who are 9 and will turn 10 in the season can apply for big game hunts in the second application period in August.
