The Youth Hunting and Trapping License is one license and shall be a renewable license that shall expire on the March 31 following the date of issuance.

The Youth Hunting and Trapping License shall entitle the youth to hunt and/or trap while supervised by an adult who is 21 years of age and has a valid Illinois hunting license.

If the youth has a valid certification of competency from a hunter safety or trapper safety course approved by the Department, he or she is exempt from the supervision requirements for the youth license for that activity.
