Types of Traps
There are a number
of various types of traps that may be used in New Brunswick.
However, since the AIHTS agreement has taken effect in with
the 2007 - 2008 trapping season, the brand of trap is an
important factor in choosing traps for individual species.
It is important to
choose the right size of trap for the furbearer in which you
are targeting. Traps are designed so that certain sizes are
intended for certain species. Some sizes and designs will work
for multiple species. Using the proper size for the furbearer
in which they were designed will minimize any fur damage and
ensure an humane catch.
It is up to you
the trapper to make sure that your traps are approved for use
in Canada. You can check to see what traps are approved
for use for each species by clicking the following link:
