Logbooks, Trapping Forms, Permits, Regulations, Certified Traps and Resources
Your participation is key to the results!
We need as many trappers as possible to participate
in this joint program between
The Alberta Trappers Association & The Alberta Conservation Association
Trappers wishing to continue to use the "old" logbook for their own records/purposes
are encouraged to contact the ATA office at 780-349-6626
A pdf copy of the old logbook will be emailed upon request
Participants are required to keep a paper copy of their logbook entries, to be updated regularly
Participants should return their completed logbooks (digital or hard copy) by June 30th, 2021
2019/2020 Logbooks were a Success!
A big thank you to everyone who submitted a logbook!
To simplify the logbook process, we are asking participants to complete one page of required information, and two pages of optional additional information (regarding quota species). Considering we have added quota species this year, we wanted to ensure that entering data did not increase. We wanted to make it easier for our participants to get us information. Therefore, the 2020/2021 logbook has been condensed to entering only one value for trapline activity for each month (hours spent on all activities combined).
Other required information will include keeping track of how many traps are set for marten and the quota species, and the duration those traps are set. We will still require gender and age class information for marten and gender-only information for quota species.
Participants are strongly encouraged to submit their logbooks using the digital version as it will allow for automated compilation and reporting of the results.
Registered Fur Management Operating Plan
We see an Alberta where the sustainable harvest and management of wild furbearers is an established and recognized conservation activity that is integral to our Heritage, Culture and Identity.
