In NC the law states that a snare can only be set for a beaver. There is no restrictions to set it in water, or on land.... only restriction is it has to be set for a beaver. So, none of the choices in the fist question fit our situation.

With all the different regulations, it is extremely difficult to cover all contingencies. Sometimes you just have to go with the closest answer. In this case I guess the last answer: "Yes, we can use snares on land, but only for certain animals." is the closest.

I should have pointed that out in the beginning. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

Please don't play games here. Cable restraints and snares are the same thing, no matter what some may choose to call them.

In Georgia we are allowed to snare beaver. We can set on dry land only if the set is no further than ten feet from the high water mark, of what ever body of water we are working.

So my answer to your first question is the answer you suggested that Paul use, as it was the closest to the situation.

In Georgia, we have no closed season on beaver. We may trap/snare beaver the year 'round.
None of your three poll choices reflects our situation. I answered, " concurrent with our regular season", but this is not a true reflection of our statute.

Adios,
45/70,
RKBA !!!

Seeing that cable restraints were not mentioned , I did not nor do not consider them a snare so only applied the questions to the underwater snares we are allowed to use.

A.C.E. I have to ask this. Why do you consider a cable restraint different than a snare?

Because in Wisconsin, and maybe some other places, they actually list two devices "cable restraints" and "snares" in their regulations. On "snares" they can use any kind of lock and they donít need a break-away device. But "snares" can only be set in water. "Cable restraints" call for all sorts of restrictions, minimum stop, maximum stop, one (and only one) type of lock, etc., etc., etc. Cable restraints can be used on land.

I should have made this poll about "Regulations for Snaring on Dry Land". But it's too late now.
