Wolf trapper education class offered in Salmon

A wolf trapper education class will be offered in Salmon February 5, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Idaho Fish and Game office.

Wolf trapper education classes are in high demand and are usually taught just a few times a year in our area - so if you need a class, sign up now!

Here’s what you need to know if you wish to take a class:

  • Anyone intending to trap wolves in Idaho must attend wolf trapper education prior to setting wolf traps.
  • Anyone intending to trap wolves that did NOT hold an Idaho trapping license prior to 2011 is required to take BOTH trapper and wolf-trapper education. So, if that applies to you, check for upcoming trapper education classes as well.
  • Students must pre-register online.  The cost is $9.75.
  • A wolf trapper education class provides students with interactive, hands-on training from experienced, certified trapper instructors.

COVID-19 precautions:

Class size is limited to allow for appropriate physical distancing.

Students are asked not to attend a course if they exhibit COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.

Additional class protocols or class cancellations may occur should state COVID-19 guidelines change prior to a course date.

For more information, please contact the Fish and Game office in Salmon at 208-756-2271.
