Oregon: Governor Signs Bill to Expand Hunting Opportunities

Today, May 17, Governor Kate Brown (D) signed House Bill 2566 into law.  Introduced by state Representative Brad Witt (D-31), HB 2566 will increase the maximum age limit for youth participating in the existing hunter mentoring program from 14 to 16 years of age.  Current law allows a licensed hunter, 21 years or older, to mentor youth in order to introduce them to hunting.  HB 2566 passed the House with a 56-0 vote and the Senate with a 30-0 vote.  This bill will go into effect on January 1, 2018.
