Actually, there’s really good reason why. Trappers share the ground with all outdoor enthusiasts. Including bird/coyote/bobcat/coon hunters using dogs and people who merely walk their dog. No one want’s their dog caught in a lethal snare.

Our fur may not be very good, but I don’t have a problem with our regs for the most part. If I had to complain, I wish we could get a longer check on lethal water sets.

I don’t think ours need any changes, they’re pretty reasonable.

Oh hogwash! Domestic dogs that are broke to the leash just sit down and wait for you to let them off. The only ones I have caught in snares do. Never even a catch circle.

Cages only.
I would have multiple catches if it weren’t for critters not fully committing to my cages

Agreed

The claim here is that the hound hunters would go after footholds if we went for snares. Yet Florida to our south has snares without issue but can't use footholds. So which is it?

In Mo, you can buy a lifetime H@F Permit, but it doesn't include trapping.

2x - sounds like the anti's have him fooled.

Deer stops on snares are mandatory here, every snare and that sucks. Tags on traps is a stupid law as well.

If there 1 law it would be the 1 per trapper limit on otter / Fisher and eastern ND bobcat. There trying to turn trapping into deer hunting. I realize alot of you are states that already do all sorts of dumb stuff like this.

Also I have a question. Don't any of your states have legislation protection for agriculture? In ND it's in our century code a land owner operator or there agent can pretty well do whatever in season out of Season limited to a nuke to protect livestock or property. That's not exact wording but I can snare out of season to protect livestock or thermal hunt. Or set beaver traps on dry land if I want. Kinda grey area that game and fish hates but also no warden dumb enough to challenge agriculture and the century code.

Need comment on cable restraints as well. There a joke!! I use the most lethal snares I can get my hands on. Have a dog with me every day. Have never killed a hunting dog with a hunter. Have flattened a few wandering ranch dogs. Never a landowners dog tho. The dogs came from many miles away and we're not welcomed we're they were at. A good dog will not be a problem in a trap or snare. Now a 220 box might be a different story.

Actually it's that way to hunt, trap, fish on any land not your's in Georgia and Alabama. Generally not enforced on private lands outside of cause and enforced on state and federal lands that are open.

You need to set the trigger of 330 Offset from center which is 100% unsafe and will get your more body catches than anything. It's just wrong unless someone can tell me what I'm missing.
