Pineville is home to the 2013 male and female Youth Hunters of the Year, and they both live under the same roof.

Chloe and Chase Slayter received their awards Saturday night at the Louisiana Outdoor Writers Association conference in Houma.

Chloe, who also was named the 2012 female Youth Hunter of the Year after bagging a big 14-point buck on Red River Wildlife Management Area, picked up the award for 2013 after taking down an 11-pointer during the lottery hunt on Bayou Cocodrie NWR.

Chase was named the male Youth Hunter of the Year for his participation in the east zone youth waterfowl hunt on Catahoula Lake, where he enjoyed a successful morning calling in and shooting pintail drakes.

The Slayters received plaques recognizing their achievement, and a gift card from Bowie Outfitters.

All youth hunters, age 15 and under, are encouraged to participate in the Youth Hunter Registry Program and the Youth Hunter of the Year program.
