The North Dakota Cooperative Fur Harvester Education Program is sponsoring a fur harvester education class in Bismarck, Jamestown and Dickinson for anyone interested in trapping or hunting furbearers.
The free 16-hour course in Bismarck and Jamestwon is Aug. 13, 15 and 17. The course in Dickinson is Sept. 7 and 14.
Students will learn about traps, trapping and snaring techniques, furbearer biology and fur care. A field day allows students to make a variety of land, water and snare sets.
Upon completion, graduates are issued a certification card that is recognized by any state requiring trapper education prior to purchasing a license.
Anyone interested in signing up for the class should access the Game and Fish Department website at gf.nd.gov, click on the online services link, and “online course enrollment” under the hunter education heading.
