NYS Trapping bill bad news A04777


As the NY Legislative season winds down this week there are a couple of very important bills out here that need our attention in hopes that we can contain them in Committee another year. Please take the time to call, fax or email your concerns to your local Senator & Assembly Representatives about the following bills.

It could be as simple as "my name is --------- and I am a licensed NYS sportsman or trapper. Bill #----- is very dangerous for trappers and I ask that it be removed from the committee agenda or held in committee. Thank you." Thank You for doing you part to keep trapping strong in New York and if you’re not currently a member of the New York State Trappers Association or have a fellow trapper that isn’t, please consider that without support, both financially and in numbers, we will surely fall by the wayside and the anti-trappers will win.

You can view the full bills at the Assembly website and the Senate website at .
