There will be two wolf trapper classes in the Clearwater Region this week—one on Friday, September 5 in Lewiston, and one on Saturday, September 6 in Ahsahka.
There are still seats available in these classes. These may be the only classes offered in the Clearwater Region for 2014.
Trappers may register online at https://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/education/?getPage=30, or call the local Idaho Fish and Game office.
A person must have a trapping license and attend a wolf trapper class before purchasing wolf trapping tags. Trappers must register to take the wolf trapper class.
The eight-hour class provides students with interactive, hands-on training from experienced, certified trapper instructors. The curriculum includes wolf management; wolf trapping regulations and ethics; wolf habits and behavior; making, rigging and setting traps and snares; proper care for a wolf; reporting requirements.
The cost is $8 per student. Online registration includes an additional convenience fee of $1.24.
