    Also if you have your core and FWID valid you can hunt with him till 18 if he gets a junior license ($7)and cuts your taqs. No rush for him to do core if you feel he's not ready for it.
    My sentiments exactly! He says he's OK shooting squirrels and field-dressing rabbits, but when you see blood and guts in real life things can change.

I am a BC Resident Hunter with PAL and CORE, so that does not apply to me.

    My son is 14 but because he has his POL, he can also legally carry his own gun AND hunt as a youth with me. Two rifles are better than one.
    Not correct. The section on page 8 refers to “Bag Limits and Supervision for Youth and Initiation Hunting Licences:”
    At the top of the column “A youth hunter, whether or not they have completed a hunter safety training program or are hunting under a hunting or youth licence, must be accompanied and under the close personal supervision of an adult who carries the proper licences and meets the prescribed qualifications to be a supervising hunter.”

    ”Hunters under the age of 18, and hunters hunting under the authority of an Initiation Hunting Licence, must be accompanied and under the close personal supervision while hunting by a person who meets the following prescribed qualifications:”

    To be a qualified supervisor you must have hunted for the 3 years prior to the season. Take the time to read it all.

    I went through this with my own son. Buddy hunted with me and my son for 2 years because I didn’t qualify.

    If you are still confused call your local CO. They will give you the best answer.
