Require Permission to Trap on Private Lands in Minnesota

Amendment HF 1390 was voted on in Minnesota House and defeated with the roll call listed below. The same amendment  passed the Minnesota Senate on a voice vote on SF 1924. Below is the vote and the bill's language.

“A person may not set or place a trap or snare on private property that is not subject to a requirement to be open to the public, other than property owned or occupied by the person, unless the person has the written permission of the owner, occupant, or lessee of the private property. This subdivision includes, but is not limited to, written permission to access private property from waters of the state when the trap or snare is placed or staked in the water.”
