Course Outline

Trappers, just like hunters, need to conduct themselves in a safe and responsible manner. Responsible trappers:

  • Get permission to trap on private property.
  • Place traps only where targeted species will be caught.
  • Use correctly sized, well-maintained equipment for the species being trapped.
  • Check traps frequently—traps must be checked every 36 hours.
  • Dispatch or kill animals quickly and humanely.
  • Use as much of the animal as possible.
  • Take precautions not to trap non-target species in areas of multiple uses.
  • Release non-target species quickly.
