    my stepson and i plan on deer hunting this fall and i thought since his father bought him a shot gun that he took him to get a f.o.i.d. card. turns out he didnt. he just turned 16 and has completed the hunter safety course. they went to a gun shop and filled out the app but they said he might not get it in time. question is will he be ok if we stay together? or should we not chance it?

    I would talk with your local DNR officer . He should beable to answer your question. I would hate to say one way and it be wrong and then you get a ticket or lose the gun.

    Since he's under 18 He'll be fine, but you need to stay right with him with all your proper papers. If you do that there is no reason you can't both have fun.

    Call DNR, i'm fairly sure that you can go pick up his FOID instead of having to wait an additional week or two for the mailing process.
