To Trap and Hunt-Right-Does a trapper in Minnesota have a right to trap or hunt on the banks of a stream where the land is posted by the owner? Can one trap along the shore and set the traps under water if the land is posted? Does the owner of the land own everything down to the low water mark?
I think that the land owner owns everything down to the low water mark, at least, and you certainly would have no right to set foot on his land for purposes of hunting or trapping, it is posted. Whether the traps are set under water, or not, makes no difference, if you have to walk on his land in order to set or attend to the traps. If you set them from a boat, I believe that the law would uphold you, but I am not certain.
Game Laws and Licenses-When the questions under this header were answered the laws were in effect at that time, but as the laws change somewhat each year and 1913 laws especially, some of the answers here given maybe incorrect.
