Expanding on personal freedoms, new sportsmen bills were recently signed adding trapping to the youth license program, including various species for hunting and increasing hunting season for landowners with 40 acres or more. Senate Bill 2410 adds trapping to the youth license program. Hunters age 18 and younger may apply for a Youth Trapping License, as well as the current hunting and fishing licenses available for this age category. Anglers will now be able to catch catfish using bowfishing equipment under House Bill 5788, and hunters are now permitted to hunt three additional species of birds on public hunting grounds. Landowners with 40 acres or more will now be able to obtain free landowner permits for both deer and turkey, according to Senate Bill 3003.
