Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will hold a Wolf Trapping Certification class in Butte at the La Quinta Inn and Suites on September 6 from 8 a.m. to noon. Certification is required for all would-be wolf trappers in the state of Montana. Individuals that have been certified in years past do not need to take the class again.
Online registration is required for all participants. This course, and others scheduled around the state, can be found at fwp.mt.gov under the “Education” tab. Classes are also scheduled for Bozeman on August 16, and in Missoula on August 23, September 28, and October 18.
Classes are taught by FWP staff and experienced wolf trappers. In addition to specifics on equipment and techniques, participants will learn about the history, ethics, management, regulations and requirements of wolves and wolf trapping.
