Jay Crenshaw, Regional Wildlife Manager with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game’s Clearwater Office says pre-registration is required and the courses are offered on a first-come, first-served basis and are limited to 30 individuals each.
Crenshaw comments on the wolf trapping courses:
Three courses will be offered this week. The first will be held Thursday in Kooskia at the Kooskia Community Center. On Friday a course will be offered in Orofino at the Clearwater National Forest Office. And on Saturday a trapping class will be conducted in Lewiston at the Clearwater Fish and Game Office.
All three classes run from 9am to 5pm PST.
To date, six classes have been held in local communities with over 155 trappers certified. Additional courses may be offered if interest remains high.
