Description of the Basic Trapping Course
To meet the license requirements to trap, applicants must successfully pass a basic trapping course. The basic trapping course is approximately six hours long and consists of both classroom study and field work. Anyone wishing to land trap for coyotes must also take the Coyote Land Trapping Course, which teaches specific practical techniques that must be used for land trapping coyotes.
The basic trapping course and Coyote Land Trapping Course may be taken in any order, with the result that when both courses have been completed successfully, the graduate is able to purchase a trapping license for all furbearing species, including coyotes for land trapping on private property of at least 10 contiguous acres in size.
