    I just read the new regulations and F&G increased the youth waterfowl season age limit from 15 to 17. Just wanted to let everyone know. Pheasant youth is still 15 so seems a little weird they don't make them the same. Anyway my son is 16 so I was thinking he was done but looks like he gets another crack at it this year.

    Pretty weird that they didn't change the age for both. That's bound to create some confusion and enforcement issues. Although I don't think I am a fan of raising the age. If you are old enough to drive a car by yourself you are old enough to be past the "youth hunt" age.
