Yes, they were legal until a few idiots caught a couple high priced dogs.

220's are still legal in PA but they have to be completely submerged and only used for beaver....so dont get caught with one in a rat run...

Re: 220 coni's

High priced dogs ? Were they hunting dogs , isnt there a leash law in Pa. , why were the dogs running or roaming freely ..

I hunt in Maine with my beagles for snowshoe hares and had one of my dogs get caught in a coyote set , did i get mad nope , the trappers have every right we did to be trapping as we did to be hunting hares ..
Why if the dogs were roaming freely werent the owners fined ?

Why was the blame put on the trappers , if im legal and catch a dog thats to bad i feel no remorse what so ever ...

The Game Commission should stick up for the guys and girls that are afield instead of bending for the wacko extremists ...

There is no reason in the world not to be able to use a 220 in a bucket for raccoons in this state it is just bad politics on the side of the PGC TO BEND FOR IN MY OPINION ANIMAL ACTIVISTS ....

Re: 220 coni's

I wish the law made it illegal to set ANY body grip trap larger than a 110 unless it is partially submerged. The few fools that will strech or break the current regs cause trappers more harm by catching pets than anythng else trapper do.
The benifits of using body gips above ground is not worth the damage that they may do-to pets and trappers.

Re: 220 coni's

One of the most ignorant statements I have seen in a long time. If coons will go in a bucket for the bait, so will hunting dogs. The PGC would be doing a dis service to hunters who hunt with dogs by allowing 220 traps in a bucket for raccons, also starting a war which the trappers would lose! Take a bite of that popcorn Dietsch.
