Members of the Montana Furharvesters Association and the Montana Trappers Association, in partnership with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, are holding a free wolf trapper education and certification course on May 23 at Pine Grove Pond in Kalispell.
The public is invited to participate in this course. Participants who want to receive formal certification as a wolf trapper and are 11 and older will need to register here and pass a brief test at the conclusion of the course. Before setting a wolf trap in Montana, a person must successfully complete either a one-time Montana FWP or Idaho offered trapper education and certification course.
This course will be entirely outside so dress accordingly. The venue does not have seating and if you would like to sit during the presentations please bring your own chair.
The sessions will focus on ethics, regulations, trap ID, lures/baits and other information to help you in the field.
Participants should bring their own lunch, otherwise lunch will be provided for $10. To request a lunch, please RSVP with Tom Fieber at (406) 250-3386.
Parking is limited at Pine Grove Pond so please carpool if you can. Pine Grove is 3 miles northeast of Kalispell off Rose Crossing east of Whitefish Stage Road and just west of the Whitefish River.
