Montana law now allows 10-17 year olds to obtain hunting licenses without completing a hunter education course if accompanied by a family member over 21 years old. What do you think? Thu, 09/10/2015 - 2:06pm admin Choices This is a great way to preserve our hunting heritage. Putting a loaded rifle in an untrained 10-year-old's hands is completely irresponsible. They should go back to the old rules. I'm opposed to hunting by anyone at any age.
