Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will host a wolf trapper certification class Sept. 30 in Great Falls at its Region 4 Headquarters, 4600 Giant Springs Road.
The Saturday class will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students should register on-line soon as spots may fill up quickly.
Certification is mandatory for anyone planning to trap wolves in Montana. Trappers who have previously successfully completed a wolf trapping course in Montana or Idaho do not need to retake the course.
The class is free and interested students can check the schedule and register online at fwp.mt.gov. Follow the links to “hunter education.” Classes are also currently scheduled in Bozeman and Missoula.
In addition to specifics on equipment and techniques, participants will learn about the history, ethics, management and regulations related to wolves and wolf trapping.
