Anyone interested in trapping wolves in Idaho must pass a wolf trapping certification program offered by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.
Two classes are set for Coeur d’Alene this month. The classes, which allow trappers to purchase wolf-trapping tags, are from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Sept. 22 and Sept. 23 at the IDFG’s Panhandle Regional Office at 2885 W. Kathleen Ave.
Classes include on-site demonstrations and cover topics including wolf biology and management, wolf behavior, trapping and snaring techniques, harvest reporting requirements and proper care of the animal after harvest.
Pre-registration is required and anyone interested can register online at the Fish and Game website, or by contacting the IDFG office.
Classes cost $8 per student. There is an additional fee for online registration.
