I believe so. May let Some others chime in before you do it. It adds extended seasons on private lands. You can read the amendment vs the current reg on the link above.

This amendment modifies the dates for which furbearers may be trapped, adds trapping opportunity on private lands, and clarifies when traps may be set and the possession of tagged otter and bobcat.

Ben.. you can support both if you do them individually. One is trapping the other is hunting.

I think it will get a lot of support. Unfortunately, there will be a lot of treehuggers probably chime in against it. They are pretty well organized.

Yep, animal activists are passionate about their beliefs.

You can support all 3 proposed reg changes but each requires a separate submission.

It's going to help landowners control nest robbers and turkey killers a little bit longer. There are less trappers trapping due to fur prices, so by allowing the ones who are trapping a little longer, it's going to help with those numbers. It helps me for instance in getting more coyotes and bobcats off my farm to help minimize coyote damage on calves.

Not liberal enough, but we have to start somewhere

It's funny, most "green" types would go insane at idea of wearing a fur coat, yet happily wear some petroleum based spandex jogging suit, when in reality wearing clothes made from a fully renewable resource like animal hides is about as "green" as anything they could do.
