The IAFWA trapper education manual was designed to assure that content taught to students was consistent among state agencies, despite differences in trapping regulations. This is a similar method used by state hunter educational programs.
Each state is unique concerning the species and numbers of furbearers present, regulations, and traditions. Please consult North Carolina’s trapping regulations for specific restrictions regarding permissible trap-types, furbearer species and other regulations pertinent to North Carolina.
