Even if they don’t draw... I’ve heard you can get a good blind sweat lining on the youth hunts... If the ducks ever show???
Also, You may want to look into AZ for youth opportunities. Non-Res youth license is $5. You can start building bonus points for $15 per species. Youth (cow) Elk tags are $65, deer $40, & javelina $30. Minimum age is 10 to hunt big game. Not sure... but, I think you can start building points before age 10.
Feb 13 is deadline for AZ elk & antelope hunts.
I think historically, they shoot about the same.....The one thing that Wister gives you is more spots & a chance at geese.....I haven't been involved in awhile, but San J has a luncheon. Where as Wister has a bbq in the evening.
Great time at either place, if you can stay a little later at Wister. Lots of stuff given away and I think they'll love it, birds or few birds.
