I was wondering if anybody in illinois had ther professional trappers license or nusiance animal license? Ive heard its hard to get but id like to give it a shot. I have had several offers to get rid of coons and posums out of peoples yards in town but dont have a license to do it out of season. If any of you have it i would be interested in getting info. Ive tried the dnr website but got nothing on the subject. thanks

I've been pondering the same thing, run a search on this web site, Illinois Conservation Law- Living With Wildlife, I think it has the information your looking for!

Just for the heck of it i checked minnesota regs. Here all a person has to do is apply for a one year nusiance animal permit.

You have to be eighteen to be insured. if you make a mistake at 14 the client could sue the pants off your parents.

Probably, Call em they'll send the packet to you, if there is no age limit.
I just found out the Ill. has a law in place that restricts ALL minors from carring a rifle (22 included) you can't even carry rounds in your pocket.
BUT it's ok for a kid ta take a gun safety course & go shotgun deer huntin
with 11/8 oz of lead in a rifled barreled slug gun that will shoot 2 in.
groupings @100yds. THIS SUCKS this means that any kid that wants to trap has to carry a club & or a choke stick to put his catch down, that aint
rite.
