my friend sent me this article.

news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060305/ap_on_re_us/trapping_suburbia

particularly, this passage:


In New York, traps can be placed legally on any land or under water, providing they are at least 100 feet from a building and the land is not posted "no hunting" by its owner. Now, there are efforts to ban traps at government-owned property.


he's very riled up over because he thinks that means that a trapper could set a trap in your backyard or something as long as it was 100 ft away from your house. i called BS on the article, i can't see how the law would allow tresspassing like that. anyone able to provide clarification on the issue?

Sounds right. Most places, hunters are allowed to pursue game across anyone's land unless it's posted, IIRC.
