Wis. DNR announces new youth hunt incentives

MADISON (AP) -- State wildlife officials are pumping more dollars into youth hunting.

The Department of Natural Resources has laid out a plan that includes about $35,000 to reimburse organizations that hold hunting education events for young people.

The agency also plans to put $8,000 toward starter kits for new turkey hunters. The kits will include a hunting DVD, a call and a decoy.

The Youth Outdoor Education Expo will get $5,000, too. The expo is scheduled to take place next spring in Wausau.
