2001 Marten Trapping Season Begins December 1

LANSING--Furtakers are reminded that they must obtain a 2001
Marten Trapping Permit prior to Dec. 1, 2001, if they are
interested in marten trapping this season. The permit is
free and may be obtained only at Department of Natural
Resources (DNR) offices that sell licenses. A complete
listing of these offices is available on the back page of
the "2001 Michigan Hunting and Trapping Guide" or on the DNR
Web site at: www.michigandnr.com.
The marten trapping season is open Dec. 1-11, concurrent
with the fisher trapping season. The season bag limit is one
marten per person. Successful trappers are required to
register their marten at any DNR office within five days of
harvest. Both the pelt and carcass are required for sealing
and registration. Registration allows the Department to
obtain biological information that helps wildlife biologists
further assess the status of the marten population. It is
recommended that furtakers call ahead to DNR offices for
hours of operation. Telephone numbers are listed in the
"2001 Michigan Hunting and Trapping Guide."
