The Wisconsin Trappers Association recently held their annual Trapper Education Program in Ackley.
This program is a Badger State tradition, which educates trappers on skinning the furs of beavers, muskrats, raccoons, and other small game.
Check out some highlights from the event.
According to the Wisconsin Trappers Association, people interested in trapping, but did not purchase trapping licenses prior to 1992, are required to take the class.
Tim Otto of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources discussed the program’s importance with reporters.
“Trappers aren’t the only people in the marsh and out in the woods in the fall, and we a trappers want to try to minimize some of the conflict between those other user groups,” he said.
Now you’ve seen how they roll. If you want to get involved with Wisconsin Trappers Association, check out their website.
