Furbearers & Trapping

Many fortunes were made when the first mountain men started trapping in the western regions of our country. This rich heritage opened the way for settlers going from one ocean to another. For years the Native Americans knew of the plentiful bounty provided by this great land.

Furbearing animals include raccoon, mink, badger, muskrat, opossum, weasel, bobcat, beaver, skunks and foxes to name a few. Check the current hunting regulations for each species to be taken.

Furbearer/Trapping Regulations

NOTE: In addition to an annual trapping license, a special bobcat-raccoon-gray fox license is required for all who take these species by any means unless exempt. See the current Oklahoma Hunting Regulations Guide for complete details. Fur dealers and bobcat/river otter check stations listed below.
