Assembly passes 10-year-old hunting bill
Ten- and 11-year-olds could go hunting under a bill the Assembly passed Wednesday night.
Right now, nobody under 12 can take a weapon into the woods.
The bill would allow those as young as 10 to hunt, as long as they're in arms' reach of an adult mentor who's certified by the Department of Natural Resources.
The Assembly also voted 73-22 to create stiff penalties for those caught feeding deer illegally.
