So far as I can tell, Eastern / Western Box Turtles’ own habits and wide dispersal, around here, probably protect them from any “harvest” more than the regulations in effect. Their main source of danger from humans is getting squashed on roadways.
In addition, Box Turtles are rarely a nuisance or dangerous (except to my brother’s nose, as noted earlier!), which is more than can be said about snappers, and sometimes (nuisance to anglers) other water turtles.
