The Yates County Legislature is moving forward with its effort to lower the age for hunting deer with a firearm or crossbow.
It will be held at 1 p.m., which is typical timing for that governing body to meet.
A local law could be adopted at that meeting. It spawns from a state Department of Environmental Conservation pilot program, allowing 12- and 13-year-olds hunting big game with a crossbow, rifle, shotgun, or muzzleloader.
The minimum age is 14 now.
