Trapping is an important part of Teslin Tlingit culture. Marten, squirrel, wolf, lynx and wolverine are some of the species found in Teslin Tlingit Traditional Territory, and their fur is used for locally produced arts.

The Lands and Resources Department encourages the use of traplines, and offers assistance with trapper trail maintenance. Please note that the completion of a five-day Trapper Training Program is mandatory to hold any trapping concession. For more information about traplines, see Section 16.11 of the Final Agreement (PDF) and the Yukon Government Trapping Regulations.
