You can't even use 110 on land? :shock: Man, that stinks. Most places I've heard of just won't let you use 330 on land. Bummer. :(

yea it does suck, id like to set out some coni boxes for coon but mean ol mister gamewarden wouldnt like that to much.

Oh and Bloomy, if you get squirrels with a gun during small game season, you can borax the tails and send them to Mepps Spinner Company, they buy tails for like a buck a piece, but thats if you get enough to make it worth your while.

Check there site. I think they wanted the tail hole and froze. And if you have 50 or more, they refund the shipping.

yeah, it suck not being able to use coni's on land, the same thing here in jersey they must be submerged in water or under the normal water line. but i guess that's not to bad, we can't even use foot hold traps at all, heck you can't even hang one on your wall as a decoration, they are banned, gotta love the liberals :evil:

the only problem with the normal waterline thing is that its up to the wardens discretion wether or not its under that normal water line. its easiest to just submerge them and not bother with the trouble of playin the guessing game.

Heres all I couldfind so far on your states web site about trap setting:
REGULATIONS
Setting Traps: It is unlawful to 1) stake or set traps prior to 7 a.m. on the first day;
2) set traps within five feet of a hole or den, except for underwater sets; 3) use pole
traps, jaw-toothed traps, deadfalls, poison, explosives, chemicals, or traps with a
jaw-spread exceeding 6.5 inches; 4) set body-gripping traps outside a watercourse,
waterway, marsh, pond or dam;
5) set a trap not marked with a durable identification
tag attached to either the trap or chain showing the first and last name and address of
the trapper, or a number issued by the Game Commission; 6) set a trap with bait
visible from the air; 7) smoke or dig out a den or house or cut den trees; 8 ) disturb
traps or remove any wildlife from the traps of another without specific permission;
and 9) on the closing day, traps must be removed by sunset.

i understnd what your say in Bloomy but its up to the warden to decide weather under the normal water water coarse if the water is way down or if submerged is in the water coarse. i find these laws to be more of a grey area and to be honest i have talk to wardens that were ok with having coni boxes on land when the water was way low and i have talked to some that say no matter what they have to be submerged. like i said, BIG grey area.

I must be lucky because my WCO said its legal to set conis on land as long as they are in or on a watercourse, waterway, marsh, pond or dam.

Alot of Pa hunting regs are too grey to me.

Bloomy, the guys on T-man can tell you the sky is purple if they want. You have to read the law book and if you don't have one you can get one anywhere Pa lisence's are sold. Also your ? about the colony traps on trading post, no they are not legal in Pa because they can catch more than one animal at a time. Did you get my PM? Chuck

Bodygripping traps do not have to be under water in Pa. You can use a bucket or box as long as it is set in the water corse. Up on a high bank along a stream is NOTok, but down by the water is OK.
