Furbearer Information

New Brunswick has 13 Furbearers that can be trapped in the province. Understanding their habits, foods they eat, habitat that they prefer as well as biological information can be an important step in being a successful fur harvester. The more knowledge you can gain about each individual species allows you to practice good furbearer management to prevent over harvesting any one particular species. Understanding their habitat needs and movement patterns can also aid in selecting more likely set locations rather than just setting randomly.
