GFP Commission Denies Petition on Livetrap Removal





At their May meeting, the Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission received a public petition to amend the date of livetrap removal from September 1 to July 1.

GFP continues to support and advocate for live traps to be allowed on public lands throughout the summer. Commissioners agreed the petition’s suggested change would restrict or take away opportunity for trappers to utilize public lands during the summer, which is contrary to the department’s efforts to recruit, retain and reactivate outdoor recreators, also known as R3 efforts.

After hearing public testimony, the Commission took the action to deny the petition and retain the administrative rule to allow live traps on public lands through September 1.
