Took my son on the IDNR youth hunt around Canton one year, and it was top notch.  Dads… take a gun just in case.  Depends on how many birds, blinds, kids there are at each spot.  When we went, our club offered to let me shoot (after the kids hunted the morning), but I didn’t take a gun.  Also some good contacts to make there… as daily hunts are sometimes available at some of these clubs.

Register now for youth goose hunt

Tue, November 22, 2016

Youth interested in participating in the annual Central Illinois Youth Goose Hunt, sponsored by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), can register now for the hunt, which is scheduled for January 15-16, 2017.

To register for a drawing to participate in the hunt, youth hunters must phone in to the IDNR at 217-785-8060 by the registration deadline of Friday, December 30, 2018.  The youth goose hunt will be held at private waterfowl hunting clubs in the Canton area in Fulton Co.
                                                               
A lottery drawing involving all youth who phone in to register will be conducted on January 3, 2017, and youth hunters selected will be notified by mail.  First-time applicants will be given a priority over previous participants in the drawing.

The hunt is open to youngsters ages 10-15 at the time of the hunt.  All applicants must possess a valid Illinois hunting or sportsman’s license, have a Harvest Information Program (HIP) registration number, and have a 20 gauge or larger shotgun. Youth hunt participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who must possess a valid firearm owner’s identification (FOID) card.

To register for the hunt or for more information, call 217-785-8060.
