    Default TRAPPING Question.........Wolf units 7 and 15

    What is so special about the days between Oct.15 and Nov.9'th that restricts the cable size in units 7 and 15 for Wolf ?

    I am sure there is a very good reason.

    Guessing, but Iím assuming itís because there are still plenty of black bears out and about. By November 10th that number is usually highly reduced.

    From a quick look at the regs it seems like a attempt to not let a trapper target a non target species such as Lynx or fox which do not open until Nov 10.

    AKducks is correct the cable size restriction is an attempt to disallow targeting of critters with closed-seasons but is largely worthless because cable size is far secondary to loop size and height above ground.
