I'm taking my daughter turkey hunting for her birthday this spring. She'll turn 16 on April 14. Can she participate in a youth hunt?

Answer: 

Yes. The general spring youth turkey hunt is open to youth hunters who are 15 or younger on the first day of the hunt (April 9). However, because she will no longer be fifteen on the beginning date of controlled youth hunts (April 15) she would not qualify for those hunts.For a complete list of rules for the 2005 turkey season log on the Fish and Game website: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/hunt/rules/turkey/turkey.pdf
