Michigan officials are making rules to guide the state's new hunting program for children. A new law eliminates the minimum hunting age and allows kids under 10 to hunt with an adult who's at least 21 years old.

The mentor must have previous experience and hold a valid hunting license. Proposed rules call for the mentor to be within an arm's length of a child carrying a weapon.

Regulations likely will be proposed at a Jan. 12 meeting of the Natural Resources Commission. The commission could vote on the plan in February, and licenses could be ready for sale in March.
