I am a non resident and wanted to snare hares. I have my small game license. I tried reading the regs and can't figure out if I am allowed to snare snowshoe hares. Do I need a trapping license or not?
Page 18 of the hunting regulations:
"You may not take game by:
- Using a trap or snare to take big game, fur animals, or small game, EXCEPT: you may use a trap or snare to take grouse, hare, and ptarmigan."
From my reading of the regs, it looks like a snare is a legal tool for taking hares under a small game license.
