Trapping Education

Trapping is one of many ways you can get out and enjoy the natural resources our state has to offer. Interested in learning how to live trap? Come join GFP as we provide information on live-trapping wildlife in South Dakota.

Each class will cover regulations and guidelines, ethics, wildlife conservation, how and where to set a live trap, baits/lures, humane dispatch, non-target species, and safety.
