The Nebraska Fur Harvesters Trapper Education classes are get-togethers designed to introduce young people to trapping. They are geared towards youth, but anyone can benefit and everyone is welcome. They usually involve a classroom portion and an outdoor portion. We talk about regulations, equipment and responsible trapping.

Dave Hastings of the Nebraska Fur Harvesters Association was guest presenter at an Outdoor Nebraska focus at Lake McConaughy this week. Dave had the following to say:
“They had sessions on birds, water conservation, and general outdoor topics as well as Nebraska history. I did the “Furs and More” presentation, which was generally about mammals (well, coyotes mostly!) and trapping was part of the presentation. We discussed animal identification, wildlife tracks, “Poop-acology 101,” and general wildlife principals like carrying capacity and damage control. Trust me, 4th graders were happy to be out of school for the day, and they really perked up when we talked about poop, complete with samples and photos.”
If you are interested in having a member of the NFH do a presentation at your event, contact President and Education Coordinator Eric Stane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you Dave, for helping to spread the word and keep our youth educated to the benefits of furbearer management!
