Advanced Trapper Course Weekend:
The Advanced Trapper Course was held the weekend of September 27 and 28 at Buck Lake. Lt. Sean Fowler of the Vermont Game Wardens and VTA Director Kevin Lawrence helped coordinate the events and keep the 30 students organized. Per Kevin it was “a tremendous weekend”. All the folks went away with a lot of new gear and new found hands-on experience setting traps and preparing pelts. It was great to hear that there were 6 or 7 youngsters there in attendance. Mark your calendar for last weekend of 2021 as we hope to be able to keep this course going every other year. Thanks again to Sean, Kevin and all the other folks that made this happen. This is a great cooperative effort between the VT Fish & Wildlife Department and the Vermont Trappers Association and we are happy to see the tradition remain alive after Dave Gregory’s retirement from VT F&W.
This year the advanced trapper education course will be held on September 28th and 29th at Buck Lake. To late to sign up this year, but this is planned to be held again in 2021.
