Is it legal to trap groundhogs with Conibear or foothold traps? I've had a rough time trying to control the population of these devils on the 100 acre tree farm where I work. They are our biggest pest. Thanks!
Is that legal in Pa.?good ole boy said:I have also used the poison smoke bombs with success.It is good to get them early while their young is still in their so you can get the whole bunch.G/hogs are right up their with coons that are always on my hit list.
My local WCO told me to use a conibear, leghold, or lead pillJohn S said:They would unless the person who set it is a licensed nuisance wildlife control person. However, leg hold traps the meet the legal guidlines of the game code may be used to take groundhogs to prevent damage.
They must be legal in some states(out west mostly)cause I have gotten literature from a Co.that sells em.Called the Exterminator if I remember.I don,t think they would work around here effectively with our soil types.They are marketed mainly for small rodents and out west for Prairie Dogs.John S said:Those propane exploders are illegal and a hefty fine will ensue if they get caught!
