For a list of state regulations. Always contact your state department to verify legality! We do not make claims to this list being accurate though we strive for it to be. Changes in laws happen more frequently than we can keep up with and your regulators may interpret the law differently than we did.

You need a permit for fur-bearer's in Indiana
"Only raccoons, red foxes, gray foxes, and coyotes can be retained alive during the trapping season for that species. Furbearers kept alive during the season must be euthanized at the completion of the season or you will need to apply for a game breeder license or wild animal possession permit within 5 days after the close of the season to continue to keep them alive."
