Important Updates

Trap Checking

A new state law was passed (Indiana Code 14-22-6-4) allowing traps that are designed to capture and kill the animal as the result of submerging the animal in water or crushing or asphyxiating the animal to be checked at least one time every 48 hours instead of every 24 hours. All other traps must be checked at least once every 24 hours.

One-day Fur Buyer’s License

A new one-day fur buyer’s license is available for $25. Applications can be found under Permits and Commercial Licenses at or call 317-232-4102.

Body-Gripping Traps

Body-gripping traps are now required to be set only halfway (50%) submerged in water. See Trapping Regulations for more information on legal body-gripping traps that can be set in Indiana.
