This has to be BS, or it got thrown out, it couldn't be law!

Federal Government To Restrict Hunting By Setting A Minimum Age Of 21

Federal Government to set minimum hunting age at 21.
Family hunting expeditions like the one shown will be a thing of the past. // (image source: www.public-domain-image.com)
<National Report>The United States Government has decided 2015 is the year to enact a new nationwide “minimum hunting age” of 21. Previously, each state has set its own minimum age for a hunter to hunt alone and sometimes a different age for minors to hunt while in the company of an adult.
The federal regulation, set to go into effect on July 1st, 2015, will supersede all existing hunting age restrictions in all fifty U.S. states. For example, prior to this ruling Alaska had no license require for any hunters under the age of 15; meaning that a four-year old could go out and hunt game with or without adult supervision. Under the new policy, any hunters under the age of 21 will be locked out of the sport and all hunters over 21 will be required to show a national hunting license upon request from a game warden.
In addition to the nationwide minimum hunting age now being 21, all hunters will have to take a federally sponsored annual “hunting safety and wildlife appreciation” course which will feature a written exam that must be passed to be eligible to receive a National Hunting License. All prospective hunters must also pass an annual physical endurance test and receive clearance from their primary care physician. Under these new regulations, individual state licenses will no longer be required and state game wardens will become federalized.
Younger hunters will be able to first take the safety and appreciation course starting at the age of 19. They will then be allowed to participate in no more than three ‘mock hunts’ per year which will be organized by the federally approved groups offering the courses. The ‘mock hunt’ will not feature live ammunition or live game but will attempt to simulate an actual hunt as closely as possible. 20-year-old prospective hunters will be able to apply for a license up to sixty days before their birthday, however, the license will not be valid until their actual date of birth.
“We wanted to be sure that everyone was able to successfully plan a hunting expedition with their loved ones for a twenty-first birthday party,” explained U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokesman Gregory Pearson. “We realize that these changes will be upsetting to some so we tried to make this transition as painless as possible.”
The new federal regulations have, predictably, been met with outrage from the hunting and gun enthusiast communities.

The National Rifle Association has begun a petition asking for the immediate repeal of these new restrictions. When contacted, they presented a prepared statement that said they intend to “challenge these restrictions” and demand that “states are once again given the right to dictate who is allowed to hunt and when”. The NRA also is in strict opposition to the penalties levied upon violators of the new regulations that include the seizure of firearms. A first offense of “hunting with a minor under the age of 21” will result in immediate suspension of their National Hunting License for one year. A second offense will result in the confiscation of all hunting implements, including firearms, bows and their ammunition, and potentially a fine and jail time. A third offense will result in mandatory jail time as well as the fines and confiscations second time offenders are subject to. Likewise, anyone under 21 caught with hunting tools or weapons will have the instruments confiscated and will be subject to time in a juvenile detention center. Repeat offenders will be denied the ability to apply for a federal license.
There has been quite an uproar on the internet by Americans unhappy with the changes. Herb Boucher, of Glenview Hills, Kentucky posted the following on a Facebook discussion about the new restrictions, “I took my boy out on his first hunt when he was just five. He’s fifteen now and I will not stop hunting with him no matter what that Obama idiot has to say. That is my time with my boy and they can’t stop me, I’d like to see them try.”
“The thing to remember is that hunting is a privilege, not a right,” concluded spokesman Pearson. “We hope that these new restrictions will teach all Americans the value of wildlife and how to safely conduct themselves on a hunt. Far too often, the television shows children grow up watching glamorize the wrong aspects of hunting wild game and we intend to teach them the proper mindset to be in while out in the forest.”

This has to be BS I've never heard of any of this garbage. You believe everything you find on the internet?

But speaking of kids and hunting...
I do think that it is BS that CA will issue my daughter a hunting license at any age as long as she is smart enough to pass the test but there are stupid age requirements for the tags. A kid can shoot quail or a coyote at 8, but they have to be 12 to shoot a pig or deer, and 16 before they can shoot a ram?

Maybe it was true but got kicked out, before it took effect. Its not like they haven't done this crap before, they made it 21 from 18 to purchase tobacco products. Maybe a little more looking into could be done here.
and yes the arbitrary ages for tags? If you can Purchase a Hunting License you should be able to Hunt any tag they sell.

So Far so true it was first reported Nov of 2014 in the National Report, Got all kinds of stuff stirred up. If it got off the Ground it was shot down from all directions, really a hyper read and I thought I got excited. Men, women and kids really ranting at the writer and Feds, very verbal

Snope it is!

The National Report article was presented like an authentic news story: It used a fabricated quote from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokesman Gregory Pearson (who is not a real person) and cited a petition from the NRA (which does not exist). But since the writing resembled a professional news piece, many readers believed that it was true, and within a few days of its publication thousands of people had shared it on Facebook.
But none of this was true, as the National Report is a fake news site. Their disclaimer page states that they are "political satire web publication.

Still Could happen some day in the near future, maybe December or January if Hillary is elected

I can see it now Fienstien, boxer and Hilary banging there Gavels and heads together, screaming oh those poor Children being force to Kill innocent animals, they are not even old enough to know if they is a thing they want to do!!
We can SAVE THEM and STOP THIS INJUSTICE, we can Make the legal Hunting age 21.
If they are not Mature enough to decide it is a bad thing to smoke by the time they are 21 they surely couldn't make a decision of Taking a life before then.
And all the Antis will bow down to them and ask why stop there?
