NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- Legislation has been introduced into two state legislatures that would further the Families Afield initiative, which strives to break down barriers that prevent young people from hunting with their parents or other qualified adult mentors and in other ways increases recruitment of new hunters.

In Utah, SB 165, legislation introduced by state Senate Majority Leader Ralph Okerlund, would allow a first-time hunter 12 or older to hunt with a mentor before taking a hunter education class.

In Hawaii, House Bill 1905, sponsored by Rep. Cynthia Evans, would similarly allow a mentored newcomer to try hunting prior to completion of a hunter education course, though certain restrictions would apply to youth 10 and younger.
