Wildlife Commission Presents Trapping Workshops in Marion, Elizabethtown

RALEIGH, N.C. (Oct. 20, 2016) — In anticipation of the upcoming trapping seasons, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is partnering with the N.C. Trappers Association to present two voluntary workshops for anyone who is interested in learning more about regulated trapping and trapping techniques.

The first workshop will be held on Oct. 22 at Jones Lake State Park at 4117 N.C. 242 in Elizabethtown from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The second workshop will occur on Oct. 29 at the Marion Fish Hatchery at 645 Fish Hatchery Road in Marion from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Additional workshops will be scheduled throughout the state next year.

Attendees are required to take a free online course prior to the workshop and must present their certificate of completion upon arrival. The online course covers furbearers, furbearer management, ethics and responsibility, running a trapline, trapping safety and best management practices.

Attendees of all ages will participate in field demonstrations and learn about trapping safety, rules and regulations. Novices will learn some basics to help them get started, but experienced trappers will also benefit from the workshop taught by highly experienced, certified instructors.

While the workshop is voluntary, it does qualify for reciprocity with other states that require mandatory trapper education in order to obtain a license. To learn more or to register for a workshop, visit www.ncwildlife.org/trappered.

Experienced trappers interested in becoming a trapper education instructor should contact Geriann Albers, the Commission’s assistant furbearer and black bear biologist, at Geriann.albers@ncwildlife.org or 919-698-4655.
