With the general trapping season winding down, Maine trappers can have their furs tagged on these fall tagging days.
The fall fur tagging days are right around the corner. Maine trappers who need to have their furs tagged can do so on a Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife fur tagging day. The special days for the fall season are coming up in January 2023. All fur tagging takes place at IFW regional headquarters.

Fur tagging days give trappers an opportunity to have furs tagged by IFW staff, and talk with the regional biologist in the area. There's no tagging fees on these days. All furs from beaver, bobcat, coyote, fisher, fox, marten, mink, and otter must be tagged within 10 days after the end of the trapping season.
Fur tagging days were originally "fur tagging nights" until this season. The change gives trappers more time, a day rather than a couple hours, to have furs tagged.
The general trapping season ends December 31.
