Amends the Wildlife Code. Combines youth hunting and trapping licensing. Provides that the fee for a Youth Hunting and Trapping License is $7. Provides before any youth 18 shall take or attempt to take any species protected by the Code for which an open season is established, the youth shall first procure and possess a valid Youth Hunting and Trapping License. Provides that a Youth Hunting and Trapping License shall entitle the licensee to hunt or trap while supervised by an adult (rather than a parent, grandparent, or guardian) who is 21 years of age or older and has a valid Illinois hunting or trapping license. Provides that youth licensed shall not hunt or trap or carry a hunting or trapping device, including, but not limited to, a firearm, bow and arrow, or crossbow unless the youth is accompanied by and under the close personal supervision of an adult (rather than a parent, grandparent, or guardian) who is 21 years of age or older and has a valid Illinois hunting or trapping license. Provides that if a youth has a valid certificate of competency for hunting or trapping approved by the Department of Natural Resources, he or she is exempt from supervision requirements. Eliminates provision providing that before a trapping license shall be issued to any person under the age of sixteen years, the person shall obtain the written consent of his father, mother, or legally constituted guardian to obtain the license. Defines "youth". Makes conforming changes.
