Up until the late 80's in Colorado, you had to call the local warden and he would issue you permits for beaver. So many out of each drainage once you caught his imposed quota, he would come put the metal seal in the hide.

Cites are required for bobcat and otter, and wolf if they are leaving the country. Every state I have been in required them to be attached by a Fish and Game employee, so I'm surprised North Carolina would mail them. I believe the requirement of having an employee attach them was to verify the species. Since I regularly bring in bobcat hides frozen in a bread sack with a stick shoved through the eye and mouth so I can remove the stick from the frozen hide and insert the tag through the hole left by the stick without ever removing it from the bag, this verification is questionable.

Fisher I believe may also be a CITES animal, I have never trapped them (not legal here) but those I have seen at fur sales have all had a tag, just not positive if it is CITES or just state requirements. Lynx is also a CITES animal, as are I believe all spotted cats.

Lynx is a CITES animal

Fisher are not a CITES species. Never have been. Many states with fisher populations that are trappable require a state tag.

Black bear and grizzley bear are also a CITES animal. You need species permits and paperwork to export out of the US. State F&G tags are not acceptable for export.

Ohio had metal tags for beaver in 60ís and 70ís also.
And a limit.
Now catch all you want no tags.

They are not really tags. It's a piece of plastic string that is pinkish orange that strings through as many marten eyes as you want. I don't even think they force us to string them anymore. Just fill out paperwork, and throw a piece of string in a box with the marten. It's more of a marten harvest count.

Yup, it's why we don't have snaring for anything other than beaver. And the oldtimers in our associations are to scared to push for change.

Some states hand out cities tags no charge. I assume the Fed department in charge ships to the states no charge. Then states like Illinois that can't handle its budget due to Democrat deals charge for the tags.

Illinois is $7.50 per tag. Can be ordered as needed from licensing agents. I complained a couple years ago to the CO that when an otter is worth $15 some people will start stuffing them back under the bank.

The old adage "you can't fix stupid" probably applies.
