DWR Hosting Furharvester Course
By Kristin Forbis, Aug 2, 2022
The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources reminds the public that in order to trap wildlife in Utah, everyone born after Dec. 31, 1984, must complete a state-offered furharvester education course. The furharvester education course provides instructions on safe, responsible and ethical trapping methods, how to use trapping devices, trapping laws, trapping ethics, techniques in safely releasing non-target animal, firearm safety, wildlife management, and proper catch handling. First, you will purchase a registration certificate before taking the online course. The registration certificate is $6 and can be purchased online, from a DWR office or any available license agent. Then, you will take the online course and exam. The next step is to find an in-person field day in your area and register on the DWR website. You will need to present the online course-completion document when attending your field day exercise.
