Trapping rules and regulations have changed during the past decade, and they may change in the years ahead. This booklet provides trapping background information on techniques and equipment that may not be lawful to use in the State of Washington. DO NOT ASSUME that any techniques and equipment included in this book are lawful simply because they appear in this text.
The current trapping season pamphlet contains rules and regulations now in effect. Be sure that you read the rules and that you use only the trapping equipment and/or trapping techniques specifically listed in the current trapping seasons pamphlet. Remember: Ignorance of Washington law is not a defense to a prosecution!
