Trappers trapping together

I did not see anything new in the regulations that says 2 trap identification tags are not permitted on traps when 2 trappers are trapping together. So glad that team trappers can still lawfully attach their tags and run a line together. Also glad that a permit species tag holder can still harvest a cat or fisher while having 2 trap tags on their traps while trapping together.

I asked my local WCO about this when I saw him on the trapline in December and he said not to have 2 trap tags on a trap. Each trapper is responsible for their own traps. Say you catch a second fisher after tagging one. You must release or if it's in a conibear you report it and they take it as a mistake kill. The WCO I talked to is a trapper. I see him when I go up north to trap fisher and bobcat too. He had to asked his superior officer because as we all know the rules are not always written. Even when they are I still have to ask questions because of all the grey areas.
