DNR Offering Furbearer Trapping Workshops

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is offering a program to teach skills needed to trap furbearers.

The program is for anyone who has little to no trapping experience. Five workshops are being offered, including one in Ruthven this coming Saturday, August 27th. For more information or to register for that workshop, click here, or go to the Iowa DNR website.

The workshops will feature several knowledge and skill-building sessions with instructors that will teach the basics of trapping in Iowa. Participants will learn basic strategies for trapping such as proper equipment, trap placement, trapping regulations, and steps for preparing hides for trade.

The program is provided through a partnership with the Iowa DNR and the Iowa Trapper Association.
