Trapping Clinic

October 15 | @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Outdoor Skills Academy pro-staff will walk participants through the ins and outs of starting a trap line. Topics covered will include how to set dirt and water sets, lures and scouting.

This class will run four to six hours. We will start the day in the classroom and then move to the hiking trails around the Carl T. Johnson Hunting and Fishing Center. The trail is ADA-accessible and easy to walk. Once outside, we will demonstrate how to set your trap line, look for animal sign, etc. All students will leave with the firsthand experience that will increase your chances for the upcoming trapping season.

The cost for this class is $30, which includes lunch, a trapping book and a trap. Participation is limited to 40 students.
