Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will hold a wolf trapping certification class at its regional headquarters in Bozeman on Aug. 16 from 8 a.m. to noon.

Certification is required for all would-be wolf trappers in the state of Montana. Individuals that have been certified in years past do not need to take the class again.

Online registration is required for all participants. This course, and others scheduled around the state, can be found at fwp.mt.gov under the “Education” tab. Region 3 is also planning a course in Butte in the early fall.

Classes are taught by FWP staff and experienced wolf trappers. In addition to specifics on equipment and techniques, participants will learn about the history, ethics, management, regulations and requirements of wolves and wolf trapping.
