Youths participating in youth special deer seasons must obtain a license for taking deer by firearms, valid for any season option, by the beginning date of the special season. A youth special season participant may take one deer, which must be antlerless. One bonus permit may be used. An adult mentor age 18 or older authorized by the youth's parent or guardian must accompany the youth hunter at all times during the hunt. The accompanying adult may not hunt. Party hunting is not allowed. The blaze orange requirements in Minnesota Statutes, section 97B.071, paragraph (a), apply to all hunters and trappers, and all adult mentors of youth hunters, in the areas open to firearms deer hunting during the youth special seasons established in this part.
