Trapping rabbits


Hunting season for cottontail is over but i just got my trapping license and i would like to trap them do i need to wait till next years hunting season before i can ?


Trapping of upland game animals is not a legal method of take.  You can hunt cottontails during the hunting season, but trapping them at any time is unlawful unless they are in your garden or destroying personal property.  You are allowed to control depredations, but you should contact your Regional Fish and Game office to obtain a permit if that is the case.
