Registration closes June 23.
9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Time and energy conservation are two of the most important considerations in any wilderness situation when the need for protein and high-calorie food becomes imperative. With the trap-building knowledge you gain in this class, you can become a one-person hunting party — while you sleep! Learn how to make cordage for your traps; build a native fish trap and a primitive Paiute trap. In addition, we’ll cover the use of man-made materials to create traps. Also, we’ll practice the finer strategies for placing the traps you make. Students will learn to identify animal and fish habitats and how to use that knowledge to increase the likelihood of capturing wild game. Animals are not captured or hurt as a consequence of this class.
Bring your bag lunch and drinks and enjoy this unique, intermediate level class.
