    sounds like a great opportunity for a younger hunter with a mentor. At first I thought this might be a bowhunt for deer but after a little digging found this

    Each hunter will be required to hit a 10″ diameter circle three (3)
    times out of five (5) attempts with a shotgun slug or muzzleloader round at 40 yards.
