I just read something that is very disturbing and really burns my butt :x I hope I'm way wrong about this, so I hope my fellow trappers from the desert Southwest states can give me the inside scoop. Is it true that trapping is banned on all public lands in Arizona ? If so, is it just all state owned lands or is it statewide regardless of who owns the property. My soon to be wife owns property in Douglas, AZ. and we plan to retire out there in 10 years. I would hate to think that I won't be able to enjoy trapping in my later years : That would really suck beyond description. I know they have a pretty good population of coyotes, gray fox, badgers, ect., and I can't believe I won't be able to make some dirt hole sets during my "golden years" :roll: Any info on this would be much appreciated.

Hi Grinner As far as i Know Arizona laws are no trapping on Public land but you can on private land, also you can use live catch traps on public land just no foothold or snares. Its been that way since about 1992. Also I think that you have to take a state trapping class before you can trap there also.

Thanks for your input "Bob". It's hard to beleive the anti's have that much control in one of the Wild West states. That however, is not a total bummer, next time we go to Douglas I'll get with some of the Arizona Trappers' Association fellas and start the ball rolling. They seem to have plenty of critters and have always wanted to try for Badgers and Bobcats. Again, many thanks !
