Beaver Trapping Seasons

On November 25, 2020, DEC enacted new season dates for beaver trapping. Note that the changes were not adopted in time to impact the season start dates for the 2020-21 season, but the end dates here are accurate. The printed version of the 2020-2021 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Guide does not reflect the newly adopted season dates.
