Trapping


We allow trapping in accordance with New York State laws and refuge specific regulations.

Refuge trapping permits are required. Obtain permits in person at the visitor contact station beginning October 1. 

Marsh trappers are limited to 25 traps and stakes. Tags, which must be attached to traps, will be issued with the permit. Traps set specifically for beaver do not require tags. 

Regulations are available from staff at the visitor contact station or by clicking the link below.
