What is the logic behind Ohio's "no unhidden" trap law? I'm not being critical just curious...it strikes me odd...sorta like the old "blue" laws where you couldn't cross a street on Sundays and all.

Tom: I am not sure. That happened before I was involved directly in OSTA. I think it kind of got lumped in with the "no exposed bait" law, I believe some non-trapping bureaucrat is probably responsible. Anyway, it is a silly law, but one we can readily live with. A few blades of grass or a couple of leaves makes you legal. And in reality, how often do you really want to set an uncovered trap on dryland? I don't really see setting naked trap on dryland as a privilege worth fighting for.

Thanks. The "naked trap" set would be of little value to folks that are not after high end cats. But here is the gest of it, Less to carry long distances up steep rocky terrain, most coyotes and fox will stay out of them (but not all!)keeping the trap operational for that $850 cat, and they just won't freeze down. It should be remembered that some trappers still work with long check intervals.

Wacky, we can't set an a trap over 4" without it being covered here in NY. I don't know when or why the regulation was made.
