Fur Harvester Classes Scheduled in Minot, Watford City
The North Dakota Cooperative Fur Harvester Education program is sponsoring fur harvester education classes in Minot and Watford City for anyone interested in learning about trapping or furbearer hunting.
The free 16-hour course is set for Minot Aug. 19, 26 and 28 at the Minot Rifle and Pistol Club (Trestle Valley). The class in Watford City will be held Sept. 25 and Oct. 2 at the Civic Center.
Students will learn about trapping and fur hunting, furbearer biology, tracking, fur handling, regulations, responsible and ethical behavior, land and water sets, predator calling, hound hunting and wildlife management.
Upon completion, graduates are issued a certification card that is recognized by any state requiring trapper education prior to purchasing a license.
Anyone interested in signing up for the class should access the Game and Fish Department website at gf.nd.gov, click on the online services link, and “online course enrollment” under the hunter education heading.
