I was told by a co-worker who went to the KDWP Commission meeting this week at Medicine Lodge, that the Commission approved new furharvester regs at their meeting. It sounded like the only thing that will affect us is that we no longer will have to get a hold-over form signed by the Conservation Officer, to allow us to hold furs past a certain date after the end of the season. Meaning, we can keep our furs from season to season if we want to, or not have to worry about selling by a certain date. In the past we could keep them longer if we got the correct form signed. Now, no form required! :D

Also, no new regs on body grip traps on public land. There was a concern that after the beagle/220 incident last winter, that folks would show up at the public meeting and succed in getting more restrictive regs imposed statewide. Evidently, that didn't happen.

I haven't seen anything official on these yet, but I trust the other guy, as he is also a trapper, and would have payed attention to this part of the public meeting.

That is really good that they dumped the holdover permits. That was kind of a pain! Trapping is very valuable on public lands, especially where a lake or reservoir is concerned, the dang beaver are really hammering Hillsdale lake; so I would hope that they wouldn't screw with trappers very much. If hunters would read the regulations they would see that trapping is allowed on public lands and would keep that in the back of their minds. I try to set where quail hunters wouldn't be interested in going but you just never know. I could see a rabbit hunter messing around one of my sets though. That is just a chance everyone takes in trapping public lands, all have equal right to be there.
