Just wait until “pets” start becoming snacks for the predators, then they’ll be screaming something needs to be done.

We've loosely considered selling the farm and moving to New Mexico when I retire. I guess that's officially out. Frankly, it was already out as New Mexico has been changing for the worse over the last 20+ years and I'll never sell the farm.

It's a beautiful state with some great people. I'll still visit frequently. I fell in love with it when I was a kid at Philmont. The Santa Fe and, as mentioned above, California influence has however turned it whacky.

At some point everyone should consider stocking up on all of the traps and trap parts they will eventually ban with a federal law. I'm already in that mode.

Public land is about 40% of New Mexico, we gave up a lot last year and it didn't matter. The new rules weren't even given a chance to work---so much for compromise !

Sorry to hear that. I think probably most states will be seeing the attack coming to them in the near future. This is a national thing funded by big money that trappers by themselves have no chance to match. Right now the strategy is to attack vulnerability and then move on to the next.

Rest assured they will be after your state too.

We are not helpless though. Get involved, join your state organizations and the national ones. The states that can boast the biggest most active organizations are the ones that will be last on the list for attack.

Great point. I joined two this year and was glad to pay the money.

I believe the anti's tactic is to pursue a lawsuit every year to suck the resources (money) dry from these organizations to the point they can't continue to fight. It would be more proactive to have states implement something that prohibits or prevents trapping from being banned. I think there have been a few states that have implemented such a thing.

True Silky, but we need more people voted in that ain't anti/liberal/ democrat and even trappers don't have the wherewithal to do so.

Education of the public is key to keeping trapping alive and well. The days of being able to stay out of sight are done. All need to become proactive as the folks growing up in the concrete jungle only know what they see on the TV as they have NO hands on experience. Join your state and National organizations and become ACTIVE in them as well.


�Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves. � � Winston Churchill

That's been an issue for years in Albuquerque. It became an issue when Albuquerque stopped allowing hunting and trapping. All year the wardens are overwhelmed with calls for that reason, for coons, skunks, porky's, yotes and that isn't the foothills area either. The warden's get even more calls for all animals causing problems for the people that live in the foothills. Yet these are the same people that constantly complain then they see a hunter or trapper and they flip out.

I love NM and guarantee we would move there in a heartbeat once my wife retires that is “IF” they had the same trap laws as Texas. But I do agree no state is safe from the looney Tunes. I just pray we can keep it all together for our children’s sake

NM trappers should start a “get to know your furbearer program” were they catch and drop off everything they can catch at the fools that voted for this mess at their homes, you know so they can sit around the campfire and talk to them. LOL

They should appeal it in court to decide if the state has the right to regulate what happens on Federal land. I'm guessing they do, but dragging them to court would show them their move is not going to be ignored.

When dose this go into effect. I heard that we are okay for this year while the fight is on. And then the ban will effect 2022-2023 and there after. I’m I wrong?
