Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will hold a wolf trapping certification class in Missoula on Sunday, Oct. 18 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the FWP Region 2 office (3201 Spurgin Road).
Certification is mandatory for anyone planning to trap wolves in Montana, and trappers who successfully completed a wolf trapping course in Montana or Idaho do not need to retake the course.
Classes are free, and interested students can check the schedule and register online at fwp.mt.gov. Follow the links to “hunter education.” FWP will offer another Missoula class on Saturday, Dec. 5, and other communities in northwest and southwest Montana will also schedule and host classes later this fall.
In addition to specifics on equipment and techniques, participants will learn about the history, ethics, management and regulations related to wolves and wolf trapping.
Montana’s wolf trapping season runs from Dec. 15, 2015 to Feb. 29, 2016.
