KALISPELL — Registration is open for an advanced wolf trapping workshop in Kalispell on July 23.

The free workshop is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the pavilion at Pine Grove Pond off Rose Crossing Road. The workshop will be taught by instructors from the Montana Fur Harvesters.

This workshop is voluntary and different than Montana’s trapper education course and wolf trapper certification course. At the workshop, instructors will emphasize trapper ethics, regulations, trap sets and locations, and snaring. Instructors will show actual trap sets and techniques with special attention to avoiding non-target species. FWP game wardens will be on hand to cover regulations.

People of all ages are invited to attend. For more information, email: mtfurs@gmail.com or tfieber@bresnan.net or call 406-250-3386.
