2013 Youth Participation Initiative Squirrel Hunt
Seven youth squirrel hunts will be held throughout Mississippi on Saturday, February 9, 2013. These hunts were developed to introduce youth ages 10 - 15 to hunting and conservation and youth should find the hunt to be exciting and rewarding. The events are provided by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP), Mississippi Wildlife Federation, Mississippi State University Extension Service, USDA APHIS Wildlife Services, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at no cost to participants.
During the one-day events, youth participants will be exposed to principles of hunting and firearms safety, squirrel hunting with dogs, and the daily life of squirrels and their habitats. Best of all, youth participants will have the opportunity to participate in a squirrel hunt!
