What does a PGC issued trap ID number look like? A guy is telling me he uses his CID number and it is the same thing. He has the ### ### ### format on his tags, I disagree with him. Please clarify. Thanks!
First of all, trappers have id numbers that were issued to them years before the CID. Secondly your CID is connected to your personal information in the PGC computers including your Social Security Number. I wouldn't want to have that out for everyone to see...
To the best of my knowledge, it is not legal to use your cid number, form must be filled out at the regional office or call them and they will mail you the form. Besides your return postage, the process is free.
ok thanks all! The form is on their website, you print it and send it. That is how this conversation with him started, I said I was going to get the number for next season and he said I didnt need to like he "didn't".
Which is better, the ID number or address on it? Which do you use?
I'm getting my number this year. I'd rather the PAGC have my info rather than anyone finding one of my traps and having my Address. The PAGC will not give out your personel information. If someone has a problem with one of your traps a WCO will handle in rather than Joe down the road showing up at your house. If your not doing anything wrong then you don't have anything to worry about.
If you ever trap in MD, we currently do not require tagging of traps. Just don't trap beaver or otter if a nonresident. I dunno why they can't change that reg...( I was told it requires legislative action and that filing a bill would get the attention of animal activists...) You can trap 2 fisher per season though if a nonres.
