Many things happen in 23 years. Within the conservation community, millions of dollars have been invested in recent years as well to develop and test traps that perform best. Within this same time period, the ranges of several furbearers have expanded naturally as well as with the aid of re-introduction programs. Furbearer ranges are either stable and consistent with our earlier maps, or they have increased in size. In several instances, some species have increased their ranges remarkably. We are pleased to bring you this revised edition to add value to your experiences in the outdoors.
