Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) is once again partnering with the Tennessee Fur Harvesters for the 2017 free trapper training camp to be held at the Hiwassee Refuge on March 17-19.
This three-day camp is packed full of great information for those interested in learning about the craft of fur taking. Participants will utilize live trap lines and learn about trap modification, set making, snaring and fur handling skills. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided on Saturday and camping is available.
Participants must register and all ages are welcome.
John Daniel, the event coordinator said, “We’ve had a packed house in years past. We really enjoy the weekend and look forward to another great year.” The Tennessee Fur Harvesters is dedicated to preserving the heritage of trapping and the management of Tennessee’s furbearers. They have several events throughout the year, including a fur sale.
