Join us as the Outdoor Skills Academy pro-staff walks through the ins and outs of starting a trap line. Topics covered will include how to set dirt and water sets, lures, and scouting. We will demonstrate how to set your trap line, animal sign, etc. All students will leave with the firsthand experience that will increase your chances at success for the upcoming trapping season.

Participation is limited to 20 students.
