Annual Trapping Activity Report


Beginning January 1, 2018, every trapper licensed in Vermont is required to submit an annual report of their trapping activity. These annual reports help the department monitor furbearer harvest and trappers’ effort.

The information you provide is used to assess the health of furbearer species, justify season changes, and identify potential threats to furbearer populations such as habitat loss, climate change, or disease. We very much appreciate the important data you provide as it is critical to the appropriate management and conservation of these valued species.

To assist you, the department has developed a free Trapper’s Daily Log for keeping track of your harvest. The booklet will be available to the Vermont Trappers Association for distribution and at the Rendezvous, the fur auction, and other similar venues. If you would like a copy mailed directly to you, email us.

Changes in Reporting

The report includes a Response Card and Trapping Activity Report.
ALL licensed trappers must return a response card, even if you did not trap. Failure to do so results in being out of compliance with the new regulation. The trapping activity report must be returned only if you trapped.

There are now TWO Trapping Activity Reports to be filed annually.

Please mail reports to:

Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department
100 Mineral Street Suite 302
Springfield VT 05156
