Question for u all?

I am trapping Beaver and Bobcat in the same location and the bobcats are toying with my snares because of the castor on them. I set some cubbys around them today. I have a snare in a water course in a feeder creek that the beaver use so does the bobcat, as i have saw the tracks also visiting the castor. Now if he gets in the snare is the cat good to go or am i to release it? I just set footholds today so good chance he will hit one of thoes. Thanks for the replys

By state law you can now keep non targeted species caught in cables if you have an appropriate permit. So if a cat happens to walk through and get caught in your cables and you have a permit then you can legally keep him.

Re: Question for u all?

i know the law was revised for CR's but unsure about beaver snares, i dont snare them but i believe snares have a minimum loop size of 7 inches. unless its a pretty big cat he should get out of that. but i could be wrong on that.

I believe beaver snares are to be partially or completely submerged in water. Cable restraints that are set for fox and coyote and result in an incidental non-target furbearer catch that is in season, can be kept. That is what I read in the book. Beaver snares and Cable restraints have different regulations on them.
