Is George the only guy we can get the manual from?

Karen Parker, fatslinger on here can maybe send you one too (360)264-5316. She lives pretty close to you. Might be able to just pick it up.
There is a lot more to the manual we use in class then the on-line version from WDFW. I recommend it.

What is the fubearers license?Is that just for selling furs? Do you have to get that when you get your trapping license.

I don't think there is such a license. Perhaps you are thinking of a fur dealer license. That is a commercial license that allows you to buy or receive fur for resale. Fur buyers are the ones who get that. Only other license related to fur is a Trapping License. If you want to hunt bobcats, raccoons and coyotes you can get a Small Game License and those are dual classification animals, furbearer/small game. No furbearer license though.

Ok I was just making sure I didn't need the fur dealers license to just trap. I want to get Into trapping just making sure I understand everything so I do it all right. Thanks!

Is Pateros close enough?

I took the test a the wdfw office in Yakima on Thursday. The test is fairly straight forward though a couple of questions seemed dubious. There are 50 questions you can miss 5. The biggest issue is not knowing for sure if I passed or not since the test has to be graded in olympia.

I have an 8 yr old son who would like to be tested. Can he get a trapping license prior to taking the standard hunters ed course?

You should both try to come to the Trapper Education Class on Dec. 5 at Cabela's in Lacey. There is no minimum age for getting a trapping license, but the person should be old enough to understand the material. Also, there is a new, shorter test now.

Boy I'd love to attend the class with my kids,  but it would require me to travel to olympia and that is something that I just won't do. You are aware that liberalism is contagious? Maybe there will be a class sometime in Yakima,  maybe @ the Cabela's store?  So far I've talked a nephew and all 3 of my kids to take the test. Pretty sure I can get a couple other nephews and my brother to commit as well.

Hoping to be coming to the winter rendezvous on March 19th. The first post mentioned your summer rendezvous. Will you be offering the class in March also? Thanks. I work in Alaska and I just missed being home for the December class.

Of course you will need to pass the Trapper Education course first. The Manual is being rewritten. It is basically done now and should be on-line in just a few days. If you are not in a hurry I would wait a bit until you can download the manual and give it a read. Then you will have to call and schedule an appointment to take the test at a WDFW Regional office. No classes held soon or I would steer you that way.
