    In AL, you must have a license even to help throw out decoys. Any aspect of being there requires a license, other than bird watching.

    You shouldn't be. There is an age limit before a license is required.

    Maybe in AL but there is no minimum age for licensure in IN.

    You're overthinking it, in the case of tossing out decoys and calling, they are actually performing a job to aid in hunting, having your kids with you, as long as they are just observers, would not be a problem.

    Conversely, when crabbing, each person can have 10 crabs, but all persons on the boat must perform some action while harvesting the crabs, either re-bait the traps, pull the traps, measure the crab, etc. We once had a 5 year old on board, his job was to count 10 crabs as they were put into baskets. We were checked by the warden, we had six people on board including the child, and we had 6 baskets of ten crabs each. The warden asked the 5 year old what did and the youngster told him he counted them, the warden then asked the 5 year old to count to 10, he did, all legal, had the child not participated he could not of had a limit of crabs.
