Trapping seasons in New Hampshire run from October through March statewide, with the majority of trapping activity on land taking place in November and December, depending on the species.

Trapping is a highly regulated activity and may take place on public or private lands. Individuals interested in trapping must attend a mandatory trapper education class, purchase a license, file written landowner permission with the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, adhere to science-based regulations and harvest limits, use modern traps designed to target specific species and check them daily, and report their catch along with their effort.

An active force of highly trained conservation officers and other agency personnel monitor trappers to ensure that current laws are followed.
