Those planning to participate in wolf trapping efforts in the Upper Snake River Region of Idaho are required to have completed an Idaho Fish and Game Department-sponsored course before engaging in that activity.  To that end, a workshop has been scheduled one week from Saturday in Idaho Falls.  Pre-registration is required and participation is available to the first 25 who enroll.  Last season was the first opportunity that sport trappers in Idaho had a chance to test their skills against wolves.  So far over 1,000 trappers statewide have taken the required workshop.  At the end of this year’s season, 124 wolves had been trapped, not including those as part of management actions.  Similar classes are scheduled through September and October in Montana for trappers there.
