Many kids are out trick or treating right now, but some youngsters spent their time hunting during Saturday’s youth hunt.

Nick Brantner with Outdoors Unlimited says the hunt falls at a good time of year for the kids, because they don't have to compete with the 700,000 other hunters who are out during the regular season.

The hunt also allows parents to focus on their children since they won't be hunting themselves.

"It's the parents responsibility to get out there and mentor their children in all the facets of life," said Nick Brantner, Outdoors Unlimited, "Whether it be hunting or fishing or what have you."

And it appears that the younger hunters are paying attention.

"To be quiet and be still," said 10-year-old Lonny Bradly, "and to just enjoy it."

To be eligible for today's hunt, you had to be between 12 and 15 years old. The young sportsmen and women could only shoot anterless deer. Bucks were off limits.
