    Default Lynx Question

    I was looking around at the regulations surrounding lynx in Alaska: http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/static/re...dfs/smgame.pdf
    I saw is says that you can only trap 2 in the areas listed and something about not being allowed to trap fur bearers. Yet I have seen people who not only trap lynx but sometimes get over 5 lynx daily. So how many lynx can you actually harvest and are you allowed to trap them?

    Hunting regulations differ from trapping regulations. In many areas the limit is two if you're taking them under a hunting license. Under a trapping license, however, there is often no limit at all. As for the note about not being allowed to trap fur bearers, that is a restriction placed on those who only have a hunting license. With a trapping license, such trapping is legal.
