Destroying the Myth
Protecting Wild Things and Wild Places
2015 NTA Convention Highlights
The Nation's Largest Trapping Organization
The National Trappers Association is committed to defending and promoting the safe and ethical harvest of furbearing mammals and to the preservation and enhancement of their habitats.
Fifty-one state trapping affiliates make up the core of the national organization representing thousands of fur harvesters from every portion of the country. The National Trappers Association and its members continue to research and encourage the development and usage of the most effective and humane trapping techniques available.
Furbearers, like other managed wildlife species, thrive and are far more diverse today then 100 years ago. The reintroduction of the river otter throughout America’s river systems is just one example of the successful partnership between trappers and wildlife managers.
The National Trappers Association continues to defend our American Heritage and the sound management of all wildlife for the future enjoyment and use by all sportsmen of North America.
We thank all members and organizations for their dedicated support.

• New Jersey lost the use of foothold traps several years ago. Now, the same people are trying to take away New Jersey's right to snare.
This introduced bill would prohibit the use or setting of snares in the trapping of wildlife. Anyone violating the provision would be fined up to $50 per snare. The bill also clarifies current laws regarding 'pole traps.'
