Nebraska has few restrictions. That being said, there is a season on grinners and skunks. LOL

If it's quality marketable fur I'd say the Dakotas, Montana and Wyoming in no particular order. Texas as well.

I like it here, pretty open regs.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

No snare in N.C. except for beaver. Fox laws are by county and favor hound hunters. Some counties not open until after deer season.

Alaska, Idaho, Wyoming. There may also be other States with favorable trapping laws, but these are the States with good trapping laws that I would consider trapping for fur.

My wifey and I would move to SD in 5 min. If we won Powerball.



Get away from Sewer Falls and this is a pretty decent state and land is easy to get on. But you may need that powerball to pay the bills. If you arent farming/ranching, you wont make much money doing most things. But ya our regs are pretty relaxed here.

Not Oklahoma! Unless you are a NWCO there's no bodygrips, no snares, no four coils, plus 24 hour check and you get to post signs to let the whole world know what you're doing!

Many folks donít know how restricted they really are compared to other places but each State have itís own group of head scratching rules.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

I don't have issues with Nebraska other than maybe adding a one otter a season of more for Nebraskans.
When attending SD convention it sounds like their's are even less restrictive.

Don't forget about that awesome restriction about can't use other parts from animals for a visual attractor within 30 yards from a set. So no t-bone sets or feathers for flagging cats.
