    For anyone interested in learning about trapping, different types of traps, different types of sets, fur care, etc., this is an amazing class to attend. The instructors are incredibly knowledgeable, there is tons of hands on as well as a manual you can take home from the course, and they usually have a few animals there to skin/flesh. I'd highly suggest this course to anyone who wants to learn how to trap, who is interested in learning more about trapping, someone experienced in trapping who might be looking for other methods of doing things, or even someone interested in honing their fur handling abilities. It's not just a course put on by one or two guys, usually a majority of the club is there so every student has a wealth of knowledge readily available to answer questions, share experiences, give tips, help students figure out where they can start their own trap lines, etc. Troopers are usually there to help answer questions about regulations, as well. It really is a great class and very well put on. Anyone with an interest in trapping would immediately benefit from attending.
