Is it legal to trap the huts? I seen a video of a guy from PA trapping the huts, I thought it was illegal to trap directly at the hut ?
Thanks

Ok and yes I was thinking that same rules apply for the huts as beaver. I just didn't wanna get a fine for trapping the huts

You can't cut the top off or put a hole in it so you can see the entrances and set them from the inside.

Make a little indent in the hut and place a number 1 underneath it
Not sure if I would take this advice.

Page 57

It is unlawful to:
2) Set traps within 5 feet of a hole or den, except for UNDERWATER sets

7) Smoke or DIG OUT a den or house or cut den trees

Violates both of them if the #1 isn't underwater.

You can set a foothold on the hut, just make sure it's underwater. Is a hut a den? If the actual dive hole is five feet away, which it sometimes is, can you set a trap dry on the hut? Probably one of those gray areas...
