    Default Interesting "tree rat" regulations for Quebec

    I emailed the MFFP in Quebec and asked if it was legal to hunt and/or trap squirrels in Quebec. I was curious how it compared to Alberta, BC (where my cousin's teenage grandkids live, hunt and fish) and way down here in Texas. I was a little surprised at that response but every region is different so I probably should not have been:

    Dear Sir,

    Further to your request, we invite you to click on the following link:

    · Trapping seasons in the UGAFs

    Definitions of others species : Long-tailed weasel, least weasel, coyote, grey squirrel (grey or black), American red squirrel, ermine, wolf, striped skunk, raccoon, Arctic fox (white of blue), red fox (silver, cross or red).

    So you can’t hunt squirrels with a firearms. But, if you have the trapper certificate you can trap it.

    · Certificate and licence

    "To obtain the trapper's certificate, Québec residents must:

    be at least 12 years of age;
    have taken the Trapping and Management of Furbearing Animals course approved by the Department;
    and passed the course exam."

    We also invite you to consult our website at the following address:

    We always recommend that you call in an exterminator or trapper if you encounter problems in removing the animal. Contact information for professional exterminators and trappers can be found in the yellow pages of your local telephone directory.

    One of the best ways to trap squirrels is using a squirrel trap/small game trap. Does anyone have any good squirrel recipes?

    To answer the OP original question.....

    Yes, snares on a pole leaning against a tree or fence works great

    I am impressed by this company and the snares they make. Very well constructed, low cost and they ship to Canada which makes it easy for you.
