Education - Region 3
Tuesday, January 12, 2016
A trapper education class is scheduled for Saturday, January 23 at the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Butte Area Office (1820 Meadowlark Lane). The class is free of charge and all are welcome to attend. An adult must accompany youth who are under 12 years of age. Pre-registration is required by contacting Vanna Boccadori at 406-494-2082.
The class will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with an hour break for lunch. Topics will include trapping equipment, trap setting, ethics, rules and regulations, furbearer identification, and fur handling. The class is sponsored by the Montana Trappers Association and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
Class participants will receive a certificate of completion, the Montana 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.
