HERMANSVILLE— The seventh annual Midwinter Trappers workshop will be 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. Although the purpose of this workshop is to introduce youngsters  to trapping, both adults and youngsters can absorb tremendous amounts of trapping expertise.


 The morning will start off with a weasel trapping and skinning demonstration, followed by a fur-handling demonstration covering raccoon, mink and muskrat.
 A little later on, everyone will be enjoying an indepth raccoon trapping demonstration covering both water and land sets, equipment, locations, successful trapping methods and the use of lures and bait.
 The program portion of the day will wrap up with every youngster turning in their winning tickets for a prize. Good, solid trapping information by real experts will be presented.
 The three demonstrators have well over 150 years of trapping experience between them.  Everyone is invited, both adults and youngsters. Lunch and refreshments will be available for purchase throughout the day.
 Also Rich Clark, (920) 897-3618, will be buying fur. He and Scott Burton, (906) 450-4554, will be selling trapping supplies. Doors open at 8 a.m. (central time) and the day will come to a close sometime in the late afternoon.
 For directions or more information, call Mike Lewis at (906) 774-3592 or visit www.uptrappers.com/Pages/Alerts.asp.
