MOUNTAIN VIEW - The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will host a special trapping workshop beginning at 9:30 on Sept. 29 at the Mountain View High School Fishing Derby Pond. Anyone interested in learning how to trap predators and other furbearers is welcome to attend and learn more about this interesting outdoor pursuit.
Cpl. Chad Cruce from the AGFC’s Calico Rock Regional Office will host the workshop, showing people the benefits of trapping as well as the most common forms of traps and sets used to harvest coyote, bobcats, foxes, beavers and other mammals.
“We’ll have some hands-on teaching opportunities with professional trappers to teach kids and adults about the different types of traps and animals to target with them,” Cruce said. “We’ll go over skinning and pelt preservation as well as walk folks through preparing your traps and setting them up successfully in the field.”
Registration starts at 9:30 a.m. and the workshop starts at 10 a.m. Lunch will be served at noon.
To register or for more information, call the Martha Blackwell at the Stone County Conservation District at 870-269-3726, ext. 3.
