Check your book as you aren't permitted to use a bucket set on dry land in Pa. It has to be in a waterway only, also in the book bait isn't permitted if it can be seen from the air, so you can't hang it from a tree or use a feather or any other attractant that can be seen from above. And you can't set traps at a dead animal, like a deer or cow. Just some of the restrictions in Pa. Read your book and call the Game commission as they are very helpful. Chuck

There are some loop holes on that I'm sure. Like covering the feather or hanging bait with a limb or something. There are always loop holes, I can even find some in what little restrictions we have in TN.

bankdigger,is the bucket set law due to of trap size( can you set a 220 on dry land)? I dont know if I would try to look for a loop hole on the baiting thing most DNR officers would most likely slap a ticket on you. The best thing to do if your not sure about something is to call the DNR and ask. Like bank said get a regulation book, I carry one in my truck just in case!

there are loop holes to our restrictions but they are up to the discretion of the GC Officer. In other words, your skrewed.

the officer is makes the decision about where the waterway is. it doesnt say weather it is at the highest point during flooding, if its low. anything out of the water, and such leverls that the water can be at. if its not what he likes then he will write you up. the GC around here are idiots, i can vouch for that.

If it makes you guys feel any better....that is not just a problem in PA. I know here in Texas that a lot of the interpretation of game laws depends on which officer is ruling and how he/she feels at the moment. They may not be correct in how they interpet them, but it is going to be up to you to "beat their ruling" before the judges. We had a fellow kill a state record alligatior near here and it was posted on the TV and newspaper....no secret. He'd hired two guides to assist him in the hunt for a trophy gator. Our local game warden jumped on him like a duck on a June bug and it was a huge stink. The warden said it had been illegally taken. The guy has tropy hunted other game all of the world and is very law abiding. It cost him some $$$ but he proved he was within the law and I never saw or heard of the Texas Parks and Wildlife apologizing to him for the error of the warden. Be careful and remain private with your activities.

Ignorance is no excuse for being outside the law. Everyone should read their regulations thoroughly before going afield.

trapperboy, In my opinion you should not set a trap if you do not know what you are doing is legal! I strongly urge you to take a trappers education class. Im sure the powers that be wont give a hoot that you didnt know if something is legal or not. I feel you owe it to all trappers to learn the law and follow the rules, any time someone does something illegal it only gives the antis more ammo against us.

I hope you didnt missunderstand me trapper boy I didnt say you did anything illegal, but you said yourself that you dont read your book much. My question to you is how do you know what is legal if you dont read the regulations.

You should. I ride around with a game warden on a Management Area here in TN, and they'll all write you up for not knowing the regs even if you say you don't know you did something wrong. They'll just give you what TrapperKD said.

wait a minute...
my pap was in the GC when he was younger
he knows the regs.
my dad read the book front to back, too
I go with them to set the traps
it is more like my dad and pap are the trappers
both of them know the regs
i don't know that book really good
so I don't know the rules
my dad never really discussed them with me either
same with Pap

theyre not knocking you its just the laws are so misinterpretted its funny and even after reading them theyre still vague
we callk the regional office and ask who else to ask but your warden or his boss
i will help him on this by saying the hunter trapper ed in pa is 97% hunter 3% trapper
get a chance take the cable restraint class they dont freeze and theyre cheaper 15-16 a dozen and way lighter also it pick up your late season game in pa
