Trapping Instruction is Available Online and on DVDs
MAYFLOWER – Trapping has been an activity in Arkansas since the days of the earliest explorers. Today, instructions on the basics of trapping are available through modern media – online and with a free DVD.
The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and the International Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies have a trapper education program that teaches beginning trappers how to use traps without harming people or domestic animals, assorted trappers skills, legal methods of trapping and ethical behavior to maximize the enjoyment of the resource. The trapper education material also explains how trapping fits into the overall scheme of scientific wildlife management.
