NTA DIRECTOR’S REPORT

I was recently informed that because our State-wide trapping license fee ($46) is quite high relative to other States in the Region several members had expressed an interest in proposing that the non-resident license fee ($206) be raised.

I immediately recognized that such a proposal would be completely lacking in logic. Further, it would provide no positive benefits to our resident trappers. The very small number of non-residents that trap in Virginia each year have no significant impact on our resident trappers or on Virginia’s furbearer resource.

It would be logical to point out to the VDG&IF the significant inequity between our resident fee and that of other States, in support of a reduced fee. Whether we could successfully argue for a fee reduction is an open question of course. But such an effort might prevent subsequent increases in the future. — Larry Kline
