First off why would you set on a well worn hiking trail? Secondly why take the risk of catching a dog? On public land that is. Is it that appealing? The bill is pretty petty all that needed to be done was set a watchfor the trapper. He would have come around.especially if you left the bobcat there.oh well.


You may think before you act. The question is did you listen to your own council?

We have a hard fight coming this session. The NMTA, Cattle Growers, Farm Bureau and others are fighting along side of us. I expect an anti trapping bill to be introduced next week. We have the FTA,NTA and Sportsmens Alliance on board also. All phone calls and emails are greatly appreciated when this bill comes

Billboards and other advertisements for banning trapping are going up according to local news.
The advertisements are donated by one anti group and show another anti group on the advertisements. That why I didn't post a link or pics

Man, that’s to bad for the guy who lost his dog. Sure wish people wouldn’t set traps where the public spend time.

K9 NM is mainly public land. The traps were illegally set.

I get it, and understand that there are two types of public land. Public land that the public uses and public land that trappers/hunters use. Too bad these laws don’t know the difference and if passed will make a lot of land inaccessible to trappers.

K9man, no disrespect but the public land here is one in the same. It's the hunters trappers and anglers that fund the
Maintenance and improvements to said land. Yet everyone else thinks it's theirs and their little dogs too. Several large cities and numerous towns are within 30 minutes of said land. The thinking of separation of lands to strictly hunters and trappers is the kind of thinking california Arizona and Colorado have implemented.

I've lived in Albuquerque most of my life which has NF mountains that butt up against the city's east side. Yet most people in Albuquerque don't think hunting and trapping occur there. Yet every year hunters & trappers are harassed there, dogs off leash blow hunts and hundreds of people are using the nf throughout the week yet don't pay a cent. The same can be said with numerous other nf lands throughout the state.

Those comments on that page are so inacurate. This one guy said that trapping has been banned in California...I mean it might as well be banned considering we can only use rat traps and cage traps for commerce in fur, but come on!

They way I interpret the bill is no trapping at all on public land including cages unless done by a government agency or contracted person

From the parts I watched I was impressed with the trappers there even women and young girls represented trapping. Thank you all.
The anti's kept repeating this is barbaric and archaic and had several wildlife biologists in support.

My understanding is the battle continues saturday. I could be wrong. For those that were there or streamed please correct me if I am wrong.

I'am not sure what committee this will wind up in, the bill is amended , I don't know what the version looks like. If this passes into law the cage trap will be it for people losing animals to coyotes,cougars ad infinium ,ad nauseum !
