Terminally ill children would receive special hunting privileges if a bill making its way through the Georgia legislature is signed into law.

From this story in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Terminally ill youth in Georgia would get special hunting privileges under a bill passed by House lawmakers. The House of Representatives voted 161-1 on Monday to approve the legislation. It would authorize the state’s natural resources commissioner to grant special hunting permits for big game or alligators to anyone under 21 who is terminally ill. The bill now heads to Gov. Nathan Deal’s desk._

It would waive some rules on weapons, antler restrictions and hunter education requirements. Any youth getting such a permit would have to hunt under the supervision of a licensed adult hunter. The bill is named for Taylor Gramling, who asked to go hunting shortly before she died of leukemia at age 18. She successfully killed a deer on a plantation owned by comedian Jeff Foxworthy.
