RE: Information required for Fur Shipping – Trapline or Private Property Number, Trapping License or Status Number and Compulsory Inspection when applicable
Due to recent changes within the British Columbia Hunting and Trapping Regulations and the export permit process fur shipments must include the following information:
Information Required for Fur Shipment:
- Trapline or Private Property Number
- Trapping License or Status Number
- Compulsory Inspection Form when applicable
Both the trapline or private property number from which the fur was harvested as well as the trapping license or status number of the trapper must be included in shipments. Fur can not be accepted without both these pieces of information.
In addition, there has been changes to species that require a compulsory inspection by the Province. The Province is requiring a compulsory inspection form accompany the fur shipment for the following species:
- Fisher in region 3
- Wolf in region 4
- Wolverine in regions 1, 2, 4 and 8
- Weasel in region 1 and MUs 6-12 and 6-13, and long-tailed weasel in MUs 2-3, 2-4, 2-6, 2-18 and 2-19
- Lynx in regions 2 and 4, and MUs 1-14 and 1-15
- Bobcat in region 4
Please consult the BC Hunting and Trapping Regulations for any changes to the list.
To avoid delays by the Province it is essential that this information is included in your fur shipment.
