Get your furs tagged for free at these spring tagging nights throughout Maine.

Spring fur tagging nights are coming up. Maine trappers who need to have their furs tagged can do so at a Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife fur tagging night. The special nights for the spring season are coming up later this month. Beaver is the only species open to trapping after the general trapping season, which closed on December 31.

Fur tagging nights 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 nights. All incidental catches of otter taken between January 1 - April 30 must be tagged within 10 calendar days of harvesting the animal. 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.
