in ny footholds are legal in most areas, but there are size restrictions, also it is the dogs fault if he gfets caught since we have a leash law. You do not need to post signs that you are trapping in ny, and i have never heard of anywhere that you need to put out signs

Your profile says "Hunting Store" for occupation, don't you have a current copy of the hunting/trapping regs on the counter?

I wouldn't ask advise about state laws where I lived, from folks in different states.....good way to get cited. I believe sinage mostly applies to public properties.

If I had a trespassing dog chasing my livestock, it wouldn't happen more than once.....check your state regs about this too, or call the local CO. You should find you have a right to protect the lives of the livestock.

:roll: Every sporting goods, Walmart, gunshop around here has the hunting/trapping regs stacked on the counter for customers to take.

What does that have to do with "trapping supplies"?

My point was....even if they had ran into it before, their legal resolution and your could very well be 2 different things.


Geesh....lighten-up...........

our trapping regs explanation is crap. you only need a fur bearers licsence if you plan on selling the hides.as for posting signs and what happens to you if the neighbors dog gets into a trap it does not say. that is why i asked this on a public forum for trappers. thanks smitty, you make a perfect spokesman to keep people away from this forum.

Well....I tell you what......you're in Texas, so by all means, take the advice from a guy in Kentucky, Virginia....anywhere, as opposed to finding-out your OWN states regulations. Get cited, lose your license, your traps, your guns, and anything else handy. Don't know how I can be much clearer than that?

If you can't understand the regs....call the CO, that's what your tax-dollars go for, to pay their salary.

Pretty simple on the dog, if it gets into YOUR trap on YOUR property, the dog shall be fined 10 doggie bisciuts, have it's butt shaved, and made to walk backwards..........

Hope tomorrow's a better day for you :roll:
