So, You Want to Be A Trapper? Fish and Game Trapping Class Coming to Montpelier For those of you looking to begin trapping, or those who need a refresher, a Trapper Education course has been scheduled for November 17 at Bear Lake High School in Montpelier. This one-day class will run from 10 AM to 5 PM. Already an experienced trapper? You may still need the class. As of July 2018, Idaho requires anyone who has not purchased a trapping license BEFORE July 2011 to complete a mandatory Trapper Education course-- much the same way a hunter education course is required to hunt in Idaho. Even if you are a skilled trapper or don’t need this class to meet the new Trapper Education requirement, you can still learn a thing or two at this course! Registration can be completed online at The cost of the course is $9.75 per student when registering online, or $8 when registering in person at a regional Fish and Game office. Seats are limited! With trapping seasons opening up all over the state during the winter months, this upcoming class is a great opportunity to fulfill your trapper education requirement to begin trapping this year! Trapper Education, much like Hunter Education, covers trapping laws, safety, ethics, basic trapping methods and how to avoid non-target catches. Please note this course will NOT allow a trapper to immediately begin trapping WOLVES. Anyone intending to trap wolves must attend a wolf- trapper education class prior to purchasing wolf trapping tags. Therefore, anyone intending to trap wolves that did not hold an Idaho trapping license prior to July 2011 is required to take both trapper and wolf-trapper education.

Just a reminder that the Driver's License and Civil Office will closed tomorrow, 11/12, In observance of Veteran's Day. 🇺🇸️ ****THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SERVED AND ARE STILL SERVING****
