From what I can tell from the Regs (page 8):

If you are;

under 16 you need a hunting license and a HIP registration # or 16-64 you need your HIP #, License and stae and Fed. Waterfowl stamps.

I hope that helps, as I am not familiar with IL regulations.

Thats all I used to do and still do alot. Now just this year I've been mostly hunting with my friend, his lil bro, and his dad. They are pretty muchly my permanent hunting buddies. But then again I don't mind enjoying it by myself.....and I do it quite a bit too. Getting your own limit and doing all the work sure feels good. :salude:

All states differ, check your local regulations.

On another note, safety in numbers. If you are out there alone and God forbid something happens to you you could very possibly be screwed. Take a buddy.

I'm pretty darn sure it's 17 here in Michigan. That's what I got from the DNR service people at least. Seems kinda steep compared to the rest of the states though. Oh well.

Does it surprise you that a regulation in Michigan is tougher than everywhere else?
