The beaver quotas are based on the number of active houses in the Trapping area multiplied by 1.5 beavers per house. 60 houses = a quota of 90 beaver. You would be required to catch 67.5 beavers.(75%) I dont know how often they fly an area.
The other critters quotas are based on who knows what. The MNR has biologist I assume to figure all that out. Plus they are a little flexible. If I tell them the lynx are very high in population they can increase my quoto so I can take advatage of it before the population crashes. (as it will)
The pelts are counted when you ship them to the Fur Auction. They report to the MNR. This applies to all critters on the line. My lynx quota is 5, so when NAFA and FHA report to the MNR how many lynx I submitted to them it had better not add up to more than 5.
The only animals I have quotas for are beaver, lynx and marten. Plus one bear. All the rest are at my discretion.
Seperate to my trapping licence the area is also licenced for bait(minnows and leeches)and bear management.(the outfitting rights to guide bear hunters in the area.)
My Head trapper has retained those licences. He can make a tidy profit from these activities as well as bait is in high demand and he guides American bear hunters for 2 weeks every fall.
