Here in Oregon they are trying to pass a bill that would require trappers to check ALL traps, not just live and restraining traps, but ALL traps every 24 hours. Heads up to all you oregon trappers. Let your local represenitive know that this is not the best thing to do.

Weeeell, this bill I can kinda see why, though not for the reasons they're likely pushing. I trap in states that require a 24 hour check policy and it works just fine for me. If they are left any longer, a lot of the time, my rats will get eaten by mink, beavers will get chewed on by otters, or if a slider malfunctions or I catch a beaver by the tail in a conibear, it's just more time for them to rub and damage their fur. Footholds, naturally, are a necessary 24-hour check thing, but water is too in my area. In 24 hours, streams and rivers can flood and you can lose your traps, but we're also required to report trap theft in 24 hours, so... if you wait 2 days to check them, and somethign is done with your trap, you're responsible. Also, the more time a trap isn't set, the less valuable it is. 24 hour checks allow you to maximize potential on your traps.

A fella up here had a trap stolen, and some kids tossed a newly purchased red eared slider through it and set it off, and then tried to get the guy in trouble saying they were saving the turtle. The only thing that helped that guy was that he had reported it stolen, and they were caught on camera in the HOme Depot/Petco/Staples parking lot.

In our states (LILBIT) Yes with more free roaming pets,people and just less space to trap.
Where theres miles and miles to run a long line I feel a longer time limit is ok.
Foot holds is not my choice on such a line though.
Quick kill be it body grips or snares with kill pole, would be my choice.
Never did want to see anything suffer,be it human or anything else.
I grew up farming, learned quick what life and death was.
What had to be killed to save crops or animails meant for food.
People who have never been out of the city don't know this .
All they see is food at the grocery store, all wraped up ready to cook and eat.
Have seen posts on other sites that offend me and all true sportsmen/women!
They don't know what is in the real world(city people)and to add foder to their cause is very unwise!
Are they anti's posting? Or are they just THE 1% what the anti's lable us all as being?
Think about all the possible answers before making a choice.
REMEMBER ANTI'S HAVE TO EAT, AND TO EAT SOMETHING DIES!

This bill died like it should have. I believe that it is a good thing. We do have some(house) cats and dogs around. In my three years as a trapper I have never even come close to catching a house pet. I can see that checking traps every 24hrs is needed in some places, but I do not think that we needed it here in oregon.

we have a 24 hr check on all traps besides drowning or under ice sets, i like it, besides you leave a animal in a trap long enough it might get out, with or without a foot, just in the 24 hr check period ive had animals held with nothing but tendon one good pull he would have been free
