For those of you in Texas who haven't read the new "Furbearing Animal Digest" that just came out, we have a new restriction.

It is illegel to: Take furbearing
animals with a foothold or conibearstyle
trap except during the season for commercial harvest.

I even called the State, and at first the lady didn't even know about the change. I told her where it was, and she had to go check for me. Then she said that yes, that means you can only use them during commercial trapping season. The rest on the time you have to use other meathods, like firearms, or cage traps, or something else. How'd this get by us? Swamp, Beaverboy, anyone else, any idea what, if anything, we can do to try and revers this?

But you can take fur bearers year around for recreational harvest. Does make much sense, except for coyotes, that are worth almost nothing anyway. I sure would not be taking bobcats, just to waste them.
