I would like to get my trapper cert, but Marysville is a bit to far for me to travel and April is booked solid for me. Do you know if there are any classes planed for say the Olympia area?

Thanks
John

I took the trapping class probably 40 yrs ago.  I'm guessing that a call to the WDFG and can get a copy of my card.  I have not seen it in many yrs. but will need one if I move on with my plan to start trapping.  Grew up trapping with my dad, and as  I get older find myself thinking about catching critters like my dad did but with cage traps.  Catching a cat with a cage sounds like a hoot to me.  Not sure if this will happen, as I don't seem to have time for all the things I like to do now.

There will be a class in the Olympia area but it will likely be late in the year.

I took the trapping class probably 40 yrs ago.  I'm guessing that a call to the WDFG and can get a copy of my card.  I have not seen it in many yrs. but will need one if I move on with my plan to start trapping.  Grew up trapping with my dad, and as  I get older find myself thinking about catching critters like my dad did but with cage traps.  Catching a cat with a cage sounds like a hoot to me.  Not sure if this will happen, as I don't seem to have time for all the things I like to do now. 

If you have ever taken the class or had a WA trappers license your name should be in the system. You do not need the card. When you buy the license the system will approve you based on WDFW records.

Of all things I do and some on here know I don't stop!  Trapping cats and pine marten are my favorite !! I do believe that once you catch either one of the two you're hooked plain and simple! It definitely is not the same as laying a trap line out of true steel but what's cool with the cages is if the cat or marten is not nice furred or young or a female ( I release all females ) you can open the door and they are no worse for the wear

I'm out that's the only weekend in April I can't do as it's the Freedom Has a Face Historical Shoot out at Bull Hill Training Ranch.

Next trapper training class most likely won't be until August 12th at our Annual WSTA Trappers Rendezvous in Cashmere.
Than either October or November and the last one in December.
If you can't make this spring class see you in Cashmere on the 12th.

I am in the process of scheduling one in the Tri-Cities area. I am scouting potential locations and will keep everyone posted.
