WA Trapper Education Exam Now ONLINE!
« on: May 22, 2020, 01:13:30 PM »
Hey all, just wanted to share that the Trapper Education test is now online, so you don't have to sign up to take the exam in person.  If you've ever been interested in trapping, but have decided not to due to the testing requirement, this might be a good time for you to get it done.  The trapper education booklet is about an hour read and the test is only 45 questions.  It should be pretty easy to pass if you read the pamphlet first. 

I'm excited to give it a shot!  The test/certification is free, the license is obviously not and needs to be acquired every year.

Is it a timed test? How long are the tests good for once you pass it?

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

It took a few hours for it to get sent to your email. I think the guy has to manually send it.

86.5.  I read through the manual a year or two ago, but so much of it is about types of trapping i dont intend to do, i just kind of round filed the info.  All i want to trap at first is bobcats, though i may do a bit of beaver trapping at some point.  And i dont even know where or how to go about it, but id love to get just one prime winter badger.  Ever since seeing one down by dayton while deer hunting as a kid ive really wanted one.

I should have no problem getting some bobcats right on my property, but one thing that worries me is that im kind of running a skunk farm here.  Whats the best course of action if i walk up on a trap and a big ol stinker is in there?

Ya I been reading the manual for a few years and intended to take the test about 7 years ago and never got around to it.
So I will admit a few things changed about types of traps ECT.I took the test about 2 this afternoon and still waiting for email ,then rushed through the test again an hour later when I got no email .
Took a screen shot of test results cause I was worried they didn't get it .Got the same score both times cause the second time I just went through and picked all the same answers as the first time so I could check and make sure I put my email in correct.
