Finding a Location
Early planning and preparation help make for a successful trapping season.
First, you must find a place to trap. The place you choose affects how successful you will be. Look for a place where it is unlikely that:
- The animal will get tangled in brush, fences, etc.
- Objects will keep the trap system from working correctly
- You will catch non-target animals
- Humans or domestic animals will come close to the trap
Trapping locations are available on both public and private lands.
