State Requirements for Trapper Education

Iowa

This online trapper education course is accredited by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Who Needs the Course?

Iowa currently does not require hunters or trappers to complete a fur harvester education course to hunt or trap in Iowa. However, you do need resident or nonresident licenses and stamps to hunt or trap in Iowa. All licenses, fees, and stamps must be carried on your person while hunting or trapping.

The purpose of offering this course is for those interested in learning more about trapper education or who plan to hunt or trap in a state that requires fur harvester education to hunt or trap in their state. Please contact the state you are wishing to hunt or trap in for the most up-to-date hunting and trapping requirements.
