Wolf trapper certification course here next week

Print Article

A Wolf Trapper Certification class is scheduled Feb. 9-10 in Coeur d’Alene.

Idaho requires trappers to have completed and passed the wolf trapping course before purchasing wolf trapping tags.

The course includes instruction in the classroom and a field demonstration, followed by a written exam. Courses are offered periodically throughout the year.

The Coeur d’Alene classes will be at the Idaho Department of Fish and Game Panhandle Region office in Coeur d’Alene. Advance registration is required.

Individuals interested in completing the class can register online. The course costs $8 per student. Registrants must be at least 9 years of age to take the course.

The course is instructor-led. Instructors are experienced trappers who are trained and certified to provide students with both classroom study and interactive, hands-on training. Course content covers wolf biology, wolf behavior and management. Specific rules regarding wolf trapping are also covered in the class.

On-site demonstrations in the field include making trap sets free of human scent, rigging snares, placing diverters to avoid non-target catches and trap site selection.

Certified wolf trappers may purchase up to five gray wolf trapping tags per trapping season. For questions call the IDFG Panhandle office at 208-769-1414.
