Interested youth under the age of 18 can apply by sending a letter of interest that includes contact information for a parent or guardian, the hunter's name, address, phone number, Hunter Education card number and an essay of 500 words or less.

Letters should be sent to: DWM Bailey Franklin, PO Box 1181, Meeker, CO 81641.

No previous hunting experience is required and all youth hunters are encouraged to apply; however, regardless of reason, youth interested in hunting but have never participated will be given preference over those that have already had previous hunting opportunities.
