Traps had the required 6 inch marker with R, name and phone, and they were right there with the traps. No common sense discression used by those officers!!!! So don't forget your address.
I tag with name city and state and phone number. Left lines out to soak overnight one time and when I got up the next morning to go check them they where on the hood of my truck and a sign that said stay off my river. No more street address.
