It is extremely unlikely that we would close a furbearer zone as we use harvester success rates from recent years to issue permits. This allows us to stay very close to quota without needing to close zones. Should we need to close a zone, we would provide several days to a full week of notice, issue a press release and update this page to reflect the closures.
