SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. – -(Ammoland.com)- The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources reminds trappers that the general trapping season for raccoon, fox, bobcat, mink and muskrat ends Feb. 28, 2011.

The trapping season for beaver will end March 31, 2011. Beaver trappers are reminded that it is illegal to make sets other than fully submerged body-gripping trap sets for beaver during the month of March.

All beaver and bobcat pelts are required to be checked at an official game checking station within 30 days of the close of season.

Trappers, hunters and fur dealers are reminded that furs shipped out of West Virginia must have a fur shipping tag, which is available at Division of Natural Resources district offices and most game checking stations.

The public is reminded that now, before the trapping season ends, is a good time to address any nuisance muskrat or beaver problems.

Trappers may be more likely to assist landowners with nuisance problems while they have their gear in working order and pelts are in prime condition.
