Trap­ping course to be of­fered in Jan­uary

The Glengarry News - - Welcome To The Babies Of 2016 -

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.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to reg­is­ter, call Dan Blondin at 613-551-4702.
