Official Trapper Safety Courses
for Today’s Hunter
Trapper safety courses help hunters make responsible decisions and manage wildlife.
We’ve worked with state agencies responsible for hunter and trapper education and various industry partners to develop comprehensive online trapper safety courses that teach students important laws and regulations, furbearer identification, and safe, responsible trapping practices.
Contrary to public perception, trapping is good for conservation and sustaining wildlife health and diversity. Regulated trapping is an important way for biologists to collect data about wildlife including information about wildlife diseases like rabies that can also affect people. — AFWA
