Trapping course to be offered in January
A trappers course is being offered by instructor Dan Blondin in January in the Alexandria area.
Learn how to set and bait traps, skin and stretch hides, and how and where to ship the skins to market. Laws and regulations and becoming licensed will also be cov- ered.
“This is an excellent course for landowners who are dealing with nuisance animals,” explains Mr. Blondin. “It’s also great for those interested in this outdoor type of work.”
The Fur Harvest, Fur Management and Conservation Course emphasizes safety and humane trapping, survival skills, good pelt preparation and sustainable management. The course is 40 hours long and includes 32 hours of classroom instruction and eight hours of hands-on pelt preparation and trap-setting.
Once licensed, you will be invited to join the Glengarry Trappers Council, a club of like-minded people working together for safe, sustainable wildlife management and harvest.
