I catch 1 or 2 large snapping turtles most of the time when I go crabbing. I was thinking of getting a permit to catch and sell them. I know someone already posted they would like to buy snapping turtles. But is there a market for them? I don't plan on going out to try and catch them commercial. Just sell the by catch and to pay for my gas.
