Otter signs bill allowing 10-year-olds to hunt big game

Gov. Butch Otter signed 20 bills into law today, including HB 399, which lowers the minimum age to hunt big game from 12 to 10, provided that the youngster is accompanied in the field by a licensed adult. Also signed today: HB 504, establishing “leadership premiums,” one-time bonus awards for teachers; HB 403, creating a special 4-H license plate; and HB 550, providing an additional $6.6 million in state funds to Education Networks of America this year for the Idaho Education Network. So far this year, he hasn’t vetoed a single bill.
