HOUSE BILL 725
A bill was submitted 1/12/22 to amend the current Virginia Trapping Regulations. The revision is found in item #10. It states that it shall be unlawful to "Trap with any sized steel-jaw trap."
We need the VTA membership and affiliates to start contacting their representatives and let them know that we do not support this in any way shape or form.
If you have questions on how to help, contact either you District Director or me.
There is also a proposed bill (has yet to be submitted) that would outlaw the use of snares.

Do you have a contact for us non-residents to call?


You don't rise to the occasion, you fall to the level of your training.

I don't know the good guys anybody know 4 or 5 to talk face to face.
Antis tried this in NC with bodygrips. Big timber companies and their lobbyist killed it. That's the best way to head this off. They have the pull and money we never will

VA is having the roll over of pollical offices so I am not sure how long this information will be accurate. I have contacted two timber companies. District, county, and city drainage board members should be contacted. If you know the folks please post their information.

I contacted the state darymens, state black angus, and state poultry growers associations as well they could be important allies in this.
