Mentored Youth Program
As an incentive to participate, youth will receive one mentored youth preference point for each year they register for the program. The maximum number the youth could receive is five points, if they registered annually from age 9-16. The mentored youth preference points will be “banked” and held in ODFW’s licensing system without an expiration date until the youth is ready to apply for a controlled hunt, even if it is after the youth turns 18. All banked points must be used at one time, towards one controlled hunt choice.
