Hey Daniel, welcome to the HNI. Some people here are definitely able to help, but we need a little more info from you. Also, we need to know that what you're doing is legal. We're all hunters, fishers and outdoorsman who are passionate about our lifestyle and part of that is being legal. If everyone breaks the law, then eventually there would be no more "outdoor lifestyle" for anybody. This applies to private land as well. If every private land owner chose how to manage their own game and chose what laws they would follow or not follow, then there wouldn't be much game left unfortunately. CHeck your laws, and let us know.

Here's a few things you should look into:
1) Check what the "seasons" are for what you are hunting. Many rabbit seasons end in February, March. But I have no idea what your seasons are. Check to make sure that rabbit is currently in season.
2) Check what equipment is allowed to be used. In many places for rabbit you will be limited to certain firearms and bows. Allot of places do not allow snaring or trapping of rabbits. But again, I do not know your local laws and you may be perfectly legal.

Check these few things out. If you made a mistake and were breaking the law, don't do it anymore. It's not worth the fines you could end up with. It also is unethical and not good for the game population and makes hunters look bad. But if your legal and still need your questions answered let us know. Hope you enjoy HNI and stick around for a while.

Seems hard headed enough to be 16 but would bet a bunch he isn't or he would be a whiz at doing the computer search engine and find all the information he was looking for including the laws where ever he is.
Might subtract at least 4 years.

That's why we're here to help Alley. I spent my youth chasing everything I could find with slingshots, BB guns, traps, whatever... That was a part of growing up where I did I suppose, part of having a lot of land to roam as a kid and not much supervision. But I got older and learned laws, learned respect for the game, etc. Hopefully he sticks around long enough to learn from other members here. But you're right, quick google search will fix this issue.

I did google to find the laws in Canada, it is all by Province, very hard to fins what you want but I did glean that in Victoria some rabbits and hares are protected and some are not, I couldn't find a thing about licencing but I did fins hunters and trappers need licenses and hunter safety. The PGC web site is a whole lot easier to use that Canada's. At least it wasn't in French.

He mentioned British Columbia so the search was not hard.

BC Regulation Digest

Snowshoe Hare seems to be the only rabbit listed to hunt and is open Aug 1- Apr 30, so closed only during May,June, and July.

BC does require a license and hunter safety course.

Here is the link to the Regulations Digest with Trapping in it, the previous link has basic hunting regulations.

Trapping Regulations

Trapping starts on Pg 43 but on the very last page they talk about snares but for the OP'er I would recommend reading this.
