A brief trapping survey is being sent to all licensed Florida trappers to gather information about recreational and nuisance trapping during this past year. Trapping participation, effort and harvest data are important for the sound management of furbearers in Florida and for supporting trapping as a tool for furbearer management.
If anybody is interested in purchasing these cage traps contact Steve Lee or Mike Townson ASAP so we can have them available to buy and pick up at Fur College. There has to be enough people wanting to get them though. There is a bulk pickup offer for them. If there's not a group amount we will not be able to get them at these rates. Also, any general trapping supplies needed let us know baites, lures ect.
Duke 30X12X12 $45.
Duke 36X15X20 $90.
