Trapping legislation

Recommended Posts

Saw this on a Facebook group. I'm not a trapper (although I'm interested in it), but wanted to share.

I looked up the bill, but not having a trapper's knowledge, all the dimensions of the traps they reference mean nothing to me.

Any new restrictions on our outdoor sports can't be good.

NYTA is following this closely and keeping members appraised. It is a common push in many states across the country right now.

Not good.

The required timeframe you must check your set within prevents the gnawing ł'm sure this aims to prevent.

This would effectively eliminate a trappers ability to target certain species.

You're not getting a yote in to a "have a heart"...

and snares are not legal here anyway as an alternative.

As the proposed bill reads it would literally  ban all land trapping in New York. The dimensions given are only in reference to leg hold traps that can be used in water. The bill clearly states:

"AN ACT to amend the  environmental  conservation  law,  in  relation  to
  prohibiting the use of leg-gripping traps"

 Body gripping traps are illegal to use on land already. It would limit trapping to live traps only so it would basically eliminate trapping on land all together except:

''Except  as  provided in subdivision 1 or 2 of section 11-0523 with
respect to destructive and menacing wildlife, no person shall (a) set or
use a trap of the leg-gripping type''

If ppl would exercise some common sense and do the right thing in general, we wouldn't have half the laws currently in the books.

IF You could get every trapper to check their line every 15  minutes they still would be coming to take this away.

Horrible !    New York is turning into California .

Between NY and Cali, it's a race to the bottom. Cali has a slight lead. Very slight, and mostly because of the public pooping, lol.
