Also, a bill I filed, House File 2209, was passed on the floor with Rep. Maxwell as floor manager. This bill clarifies that a child under the age of 16 can accompany a parent or other adult with parental consent while hunting and trapping without the child holding a hunting or trapping license as long as the adult is licensed. The accompanying child does not increase the possession and take limits beyond those granted the licensed adult. This bill will help with training of our youth in the field.
