Best Management Practices (BMPs)

The purpose of the Best Management Practices for Trapping Program (BMPs) is to improve regulated trapping by evaluating trapping devices and techniques used for the capture of furbearers and educating those who use traps about the most humane, safe, selective, efficient and practical devices.  Traps are evaluated using standards and protocols developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
Since the inception of this program in 1997, over 600 trap types have been evaluated for 23 species of furbearers with a North American investment of some $40 million dollars.
