1. Current regulations in North Dakota allow two Snapping turtles per person per year, caught by hook and line only.
2. No person may engage in the commercial taking, trapping, or hooking of turtles without obtaining a permit from the director, who may issue the permits at the director’s discretion. The director shall designate the form of the permits, the areas or waters in which the permits are valid, and any other restrictions.
3. There are no state listed endangered, threatened or special concern turtles.
4. We were unable to locate any turtle regulations other than those mentioned above. Except for the ban on the commercial take of turtles, it appears that North Dakota does not regulate the possession, sale, importation, propagation or collection of any species other than Snappers.
