Trapper education is required for those who have not held an Idaho trapping license prior to July 2011. Trappers who show proof of a trappers license from Idaho or another state since 2011 are exempt.
Anyone who intends to trap wolves must attend both trapper ed and a separate wolf trapper education course prior to purchasing wolf trapping tags.
These courses are in-person and cover trapping laws, ethical trapping, avoiding non-target catch, safety and basic trapping methods. Wolf trapper education covers wolf trapping regulations, ethics and trapping methods.
