In most states here in the Midwest, 10 & 11 year olds have to be with a
mentor. Basically that means one gun between the two of you and the
mentor has to be within arms reach when the child has the firearm.
12-15 years old they can have their own firearm and have to be in visual
and hearing distance. So if you can yell to them and see them that is good.
At 16 they can hunt by themselves.
My 11 year old got his first whitetail this year.
Both my boys will be hunting WI this year, between us we will have 6 tags;
3 buck and 3 antlerless if they shoot all six deer that is fine with me. In
Wisconsin you can "group hunt" meaning you can tag a deer shot by
someone else effectively pooling tags. Some states do not allow that.
