    What is the maximum legal size for foot hold traps on land sets? and for under water sets such as for beaver?

    On foothold traps there is no max specified.

    "Must have smooth or rubber jaws only, and may include foot-hold, Conibear, or other killing-type, foot-enclosing-type, cage-type, colony traps with openings no greater than 6 inches in height and 6 inches wide, snares set underwater only, and cable restraint devices."

    There are restrictions on colony traps, conibear traps, and snares, but not foothold.
