HERMANSVILLE— The eighth annual Midwinter Trappers Workshop is being held at the Community Center in Hermansville on Saturday, Feb. 2. This is an all-day event with free admission, free trapping supplies for the youngsters, along with trapping and fur handling demonstrations.
Although the purpose of this workshop is to introduce youths to trapping, both adults and kids can absorb tremendous amounts of trapping expertise. The morning will start off with a weasel trapping and skinning demonstration at about 9:30 a.m.
At 11 a.m., there will be an in-depth water trapping demonstration that will cover equipment, locations, successful trapping methods, and the use of lures and bait.
A fur-handling demonstration covering raccoon, muskrat and fox will begin at 1 p.m. These programs are designed to provide good, solid trapping information by experts. The three demonstrators have around 150 years of trapping experience between them.
At 2 p.m., every kid will win free trapping supplies and other ‘goodies’ in a drawing.
Everyone is invited. Lunch and refreshments will be available for purchase throughout the day.
Rich Clark (920) 897-3618 will be buying fur. Clark and Scott Burton (906) 450-4554 will be selling trapping supplies.
Doors open at 9 a.m. All program times are at central time. The day will come to a close in the late afternoon.
