Trapping occurs on this. Most waterfowl production areas are open to trapping per state regulations unless specifically prohibited. For details, consult state regulations and contact our office.
Trapping is a wildlife management tool used on some National Wildlife Refuge System lands. Trapping may be used to protect endangered and threatened species or migratory birds or to control certain wildlife populations. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service also views trapping as a legitimate recreational and economic activity when there are harvestable surpluses of fur-bearing mammals. Outside of Alaska, refuge system lands that permit trapping as a recreational use may require trappers to obtain a special use permit. Signs are posted at district offices where trapping occurs. Contact the district manager for specific regulations.
