REGISTRATION with BOB ROSE is Required.
If you have ever wanted to get into Trapping and/or use it as part of your property management plan, this is the time. The Greater Rochester Branch of NDA is hosting a Trapper Education weekend. There is no cost for the event for current NDA members. (Memberships are available online if you are not current NDA Membership) This is a class that is structured for adults. Participants must be 18 years of age or older. The event is limited to 18 participants.
Saturday will be focused on the NYS Trappers Education class that will allow you to purchase the NYS trapping license. All the components of the class, as well as passing the test are required to get your certificate.
Similar to how we put on our Field To Fork program, we are continuing the class into a second day which will be more hands-on and focus on areas of trapping that are not covered in great detail in the NY State Education Course. Topics for Sunday will include hands on set making for various style traps; use of scents, baits and lures; skinning and skinning/fur handling to name a few.
Pre-registration is required. Please contact Bob Rose, Branch President. Please provide your NDA member number, name, address, email, and phone number.
Lunch will be provided by the Branch on Saturday.
