Its amazing how much that little "schedule a proctored exam at a WDFW location" kept people out of this.  I hope you're all as excited to get into this as I am!

Now, to make some bobbie pillows!

On a more serious note, I'm mostly interested in furs for myself.  Does anyone have any great/easy-ish tans?

I'm glad to see these online courses, we should be able to recruit more hunters and trappers into the outdoors!  :tup:

I'm wondering if other states will honor this trapping course?

I don't believe any State accepts a trapper certification from another State. Not hard to understand when the laws from State to State vary so much.

I will just add that it is very nice having the convenience of the on-line course but about all new trappers would benefit from attending the class. We spend about half the class on how to trap and handle fur, something you don't get on-line.

You're welcome at one of our classes too whether you need the the certificate or not.

OK thanks for the info. I still have my last WA license from when we could use all types of traps, not sure if that allows me to buy a WA license again or not, but I'm more interested in trapping wolves in Idaho anyway. That requires the wolf class and I think a regular trapping class too? I'll double check with IDFG if I have time to follow through with doing it. My son has been dabbling, he caught his first wolf this winter, I would sure like to help eliminate a few more.

I dont think there is such thing as an easy tan. After all the work of catching one, skinning it and putting it up, you should probably send it to somewhere like Moyles. There would probably be a good amount of trial and error doing it yourself and if its “easy” than it probably isnt going to be a very good tan.

If you have ever had a trapping license or passed the trapping class in WA you are good to go. No proof need be presented, WDFW archives those records.
I believe the same applies in ID. They haven't required a trapper education class for long so if you had a license before the class was required you are grandfathered in. Wolf trapping class is needed though if you wish to trap wolves.

i would highly recommend just sending to moyles. I tried the self tan last year just to see the whole process. Feel like I wasted two furs. Cool experience but for cost and quality, send it out. You’ll be much much happier

Just took the test and passed tonight. I think the class would have helped me get a better score. I’m sure the class will help me be a better trapper. Probably going to sign up for a class when they open back up.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

its awesome they have the set up online, but i would strongly encourage you guys that are thinking about actively getting into trapping to take an actual class. youve already got the license, but the amount of knowledge you can glean in the class setting is invaluable. it will greatly expedite your learning curve.

glad to see so many new people signing up. crazy that it was just a class day that was keeping you all out of it  :chuckle: :chuckle:

Yes if you want to trap in Idaho anything including wolves you need to take both classes.  Here is the problem, as of right now there are NO CLASSES for either class and they are not sure if any will be put on this year becaise of the Virus stuff.  Keep checking back on their website for any update.
