I strictly trap Special Permit,  at least at this time.  I always panic thinking I have to include all this activity on the report but swear I did not the year before - then I finally see the note on the report not to include special permit activity... :o

Just sent mine in.  It would be a pain to write up all the activity for the year. Glad it is still excluded.

About to get going on flat tailed rats again as the farmers are starting prepping fields and finding lakes when they check on them.

I send it via email, since I get a reply that WDFW received my report.

The reply is important. The law here is that the trapper must prove his report got to Olympia. Ive never gotten a reply, hence the certified mail signed receipt.
Idaho's season ends in June. Around May they mail their questionaire to trappers. You send it back to them. They then send you a postcard confirming they got it.
Easy and no screw ups.

Good Idea Oh Mah.
I have no computer or fax so its still mail for me.
I know of two tickets for non reporting that were floated to trappers in Okanogan county after last season. One guy went to court and told the Judge he'd mailed his in. The Judge threw the citation out. The trapper knows the warden and asked him why he wrote the ticket. The warden claimed he was told from Olympia to write some non reporting tickets. I don't know how the other instance shook out. I was told of this second hand, by a credible trapper.
Uh, is that an oxymoron? Anyway trappers, proactively CYAs.

Here is how Idaho Fish and Game does business. Straight up.
Respect begets Respect.
Cory Mosby is the Idaho Furbearer Biologist. And he's a trapper, imagine that.
