HERMANSVILLE—Maybe your son, daughter or grandkids are interested in hunting, fishing, or trapping, but you have never done any of these things. So where do you begin?
If they are interested in trapping, the place to take them is the seventh annual Midwinter Trappers workshop, which is being held at the Community Center in Hermansville on Saturday, Feb. 4.
This is an all-day event with free admission, free trapping supplies for the youngsters, trapping and fur handling demonstrations, and fun for all.
Doors open at 9 a.m. Rich Clark from North American Fur Auctions and Willow Tree Fur will be preparing raccoon, mink, muskrat, and other furs for market.
He will also answer questions on properly handling additional kinds of furs. Local trappers will be showing kids how to trap various furbearers.
Everyone is invited, both adults and kids. Lunch and refreshments will be available for purchase throughout the day.
Also Rich Clark, (920) 897-3618, will be buying fur, and he and Scott Burton, (906) 450-4554, will be selling trapping supplies. Doors will close around 5 p.m.
For directions or more information call Mike Lewis at (906) 774-3592 or visit www.uptrappers.com.
To introduce kids to hunting or fishing, the U.P. Trappers Association would recommend marking your calendars for the last Saturday in September for National Hunting and Fishing Day held at the Great Lakes Sportsman’s Club in Escanaba. It is another great event for kids hosted by local outdoorsmen.
