Regulated trapping is an important part of modern wildlife management programs. Regulated trapping is the most efficient and practical means available to manage furbearer populations and their associated habitats.

Furbearers are a valuable and renewable natural resource that are managed and regulated by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Regulated Trapping has been successful in the past to minimize localized disease problems, reduce damage problems, support wildlife research projects, and promote restoration of certain endangered species.
