Abstract: Furbearer Trapping Districts (2010 and 2011 Seasons)
Purpose:
Display of FWP's furbearer trapping districts. Trapping districts represent areas where beaver, otter, muskrat, mink, bobcat, pine marten, and fisher can be harvested. Wolverine districts differ from trapping districts (see the wolverine management units layer).
