Backwoods Whitetails now offers both Youth Trophy Whitetail Deer hunting with the youth hunter in
mind. The Illinois Youth Firearm Whitetail Hunt is conducted the first weekend
(Saturday & Sunday) in
October preceding Columbus Day. There are no fines, no fee's and no minimum size on bucks or doe
that can be harvested. Youth Hunters are allowed to harvest one animal of his/her choosing. Scoped
shotguns with rifled barrels or scoped in-line muzzle loading rifles may be used. Youth deer tags can be
purchased over the counter upon arrival at the cost of only $10.50. The youth hunter will additionally
need a 5 Day nonresident hunting license at the cost of $37.75 unless the youth is hunting under the one
time Illinois Youth apprentice license at the cost of $7.50. Youth hunters that have not reached their 16th
birthday prior to opening day of the youth season may participate. It is mandatory by the state Illinois that
each youth be accompanied by a supervising non hunting adult for the entire time while hunting. All
youth hunters will be the first hunters afield on our privately owned & leased whitetail properties.
