Trapper Education Class Set For Butte

A trapper education class is scheduled for Saturday, January 19 at the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Butte Area Office (1820 Meadowlark Lane).

The class is free of charge and all are welcome to attend. Pre-registration is required by contacting Vanna Boccadori at 406-494-2082.

The class will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with an hour break for lunch. The class is open to people of all ages who are interested in learning about trapping, and is sponsored by the Montana Trappers Association and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.

Topics will include trapping equipment and trap setting, ethics, rules and regulations, furbearer identification, and fur handling. A pet-release clinic will be held at 4 p.m. People who do not want to attend the entire class may attend for this topic only.

An adult must accompany youth who are under 12 years of age or who have special needs.

Class participants will receive a certificate of completion, the National Trappers Association trapping handbook, and other informational material. However, please be aware this class does not certify participants for Montana’s wolf trapping season.

All would-be wolf trappers needed to have completed a formal wolf trapping certification class held in the fall.
