Junior Big Game Hunting [2014 Controlled Hunt Applications okay for 10 year olds?]

Question:

After the bill was signed to allow junior hunters to hunt big game, will my 10 year old be able to apply for controlled hunts this year?

Answer:

No.  The age change (to 10 years old) doesn't go into effect until July 1, so a 10 year old cannot apply in May/June application period in 2014.
