Regulated trapping plays an important role in the ecology and conservation of Indiana's furbearers. Trapping is a regulated activity and is only allowed for abundant wildlife and is an important part of Indiana's history and culture.
Trapping in Indiana is limited to all furbearers. Furbearers include:
beaver, coyote, gray fox, red fox, long-tailed weasel, mink, muskrat, opossum, raccoon, and striped skunk.
