trap tag ID preference

Do you tag your traps with your name and address or a PGC issued ID number, which do you use and why? (other than it is the law)

Re: trap tag ID preference

PGC issued number, so if you catch a hunting dog or pet they have to contact PGC and not retaliate against you at your home.

16-17 numbers
fox 0
coons 8
coyotes 1
mink 0
muskrat 0
beaver 0
opossum 1
skunk 1

Re: trap tag ID preference

Use name and address. I have had traps returned to me. Never had an issue. If you plan to trap out of PA, you will need name and address on traps. I NEVER heard of any retaliation.

Re: trap tag ID preference

I use name and address, I actually put my phone number on them too. Never had a problem. as far as pets are concerned I take them home if they have tags with an address, I have been thanked by the owners never had one angry with me.

Re: trap tag ID preference

I use the number, in case I move (within pa) I can run the same number. All I have to do is call pgc and update my address.

I'll keep my money, guns, ammo, and health care; you can keep your change

Re: trap tag ID preference

Use the number. I don't want people to know who I am or my address.

Re: trap tag ID preference

i use the trapper id number....just dont want my name and address laying in the woods....most non-trappers would never know what that number meant...and im not sure the PGC will give out info unless they deem something illegal was going on...

ie; if joe blow finds my trap and tag and calls and its a legal set on property i have permission to trap, id be royally upset with the PGC if they give joe blow a single lick of my information from my tag number...
