is it legal to take 2 youths on the dove hunt along side me while i hunt?

Will they be hunting? I see they are 14. If they "participate" in the hunt, shoot, pick up birds, carry a stool, etc., they will each need a license if they have taken the hunter safety course. If they haven't taken the course, they can get the apprentice license.

Junior Hunt/Fish/Trap (Type 002) $8
Ages 13-15. Good for hunting all game, fishing, and trapping. Must be purchased prior to 16th birthday. No supplemental licenses are required, but special season and WMA permits will need to be purchased in addition to this license.

This license is in lieu of a hunter education certificate. All other applicable licenses are required. This license is available to all hunters 10 years of age or older who have not completed the mandatory hunter education course. It exempts the hunter from
the mandatory hunter education law until the end of the license
year but may only be purchased once during the lifetime of the
hunter. Hunters who possess this license must be accompanied
by an adult, 21 years of age or older, who must meet the hunter
education requirements and is able to take immediate control of
the hunting device.

The birds I was shooting were very young. Some of them so small they almost weren't worth cleaning, though I did anyway.

I had several young birds also. About half and half I'd say.

My dad & I each got our second limits this morning.

Everyone I was with picked up a limit on Saturday, the only day I hunted. Did have a first though. We had only been there about 45 minutes and my buddy killed a blonde dove. It was'nt white, but it definately was not gray. He was bigger than the others, but smaller than a pigeon, and did not look like a pigeon. Completely blonde, real pretty too, and definately different.

I think I recall reading that most doves don't even live to see their 2nd birthday. Probably more than half of them are "yearlings."
It is not the killing ...; it is the contest of skill and cunning. The true hunter counts his achievement in proportion to the effort involved and the fairness of the sport.
