Learn Best Practices
Learn about the behavior of furbearers you plan to trap.
- Allows for the placement of a trap line that will limit the possibility of non-target catches.
Place traps away from well-traveled paths or residential areas.
- Pets are not always on a leash.
Use the appropriate bait or lure to minimize the capture of non-target species.
- Species have selective needs for food.
- Bait shall not be visible from above. Prevents non-target species, such as hawks and owls, from being caught.
