About the Program


This class series is for novice trappers interested in learning how to use baits, lures, and live traps to harvest predators and varmints.
Students will engage in a comprehensive series of classes that will teach them the best trap, bait, lure, and trap set for each target species. Students will leave the class with an understanding of how to find the best location to set traps, what tools and resources are necessary to be successful, and what their options are once an animal has been captured.
