Yes. At age 8, they are not required to have a LICENSE or the Hunter Safety Certification. However, they must be accompanied by an adult at least 21 years of age who meets the hunter safety requirements, and who is always in position to take immediate control of their weapon. They must comply with all of the blaze orange requirements.

If they shoot an anterless deer during the gun season (G/M/A season), they are required to have a Type 94 PERMIT. They cannot shoot one off of your permit.

Any deer shot by the youth hunter must be checked in under their name. If they are not in the TWRA system, you will not be able to check the deer in on the "App". You would need to go to a physical check station to check the deer in. You can get them in the system by visiting a license agent before they hunt and setting up a profile, or, (I think), by calling the License Division of TWRA at (615) 781-5270.
