US-FWS Trap Tags1940 - Present
These are trap tags issued by the US-FWS for trapping in the Upper Mississippi WIldlife Refuge.  They started in 1940 and continue to be used up to present. Every year is a different shape and from the 1950s - 1980s there were no dates stamped on the tag. Also in the late 1940s there was a separate tag with "beaver" stamped on it.
