Youth Hunting Program of Florida

The smell of damp earth and leaves. A chorus of bird music. The thrill of seeing a buck step into view. These are the defining moments that hunters dream of sharing with a special friend or family member. However, fewer young people today are experiencing the power of time spent outdoors. That’s one of the reasons Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission launched the Youth Hunting Program of Florida.

This program was established to get more young people involved in hunting by offering safe, educational, mentored youth hunts. Thanks to private landowners who graciously open up their property, youth accompanied by a parent or guardian can learn new outdoor skills during organized hunts for deer, turkey, hogs, waterfowl, dove, small game and more. Meals and mentors are provided at these family-oriented hunts.

What can you learn at the Youth Hunting Program of Florida?

How to hunt safely, legally and ethically

Marksmanship and firearms safety

Identifying wildlife

Tracking and processing game

The relationship between hunting and conservation

It’s also a great chance to make new friends and spend time with friends and family!

Who can participate in a mentored youth hunt?

Young men and women between 12 and 17 years old who are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
