Trappers to hold midwinter workshop

HERMANSVILLE —The U.P. Trappers Association District-3 will host its 10th Midwinter Trappers Workshop for youngsters and adults interested in learning more about trapping. The event will be held on Feb. 7. Doors will open at 8 a.m.
    “Volunteers will be doing everything they can to make this a fun-filled, learning opportunity for all,” said a spokesperson.
    Two trapping supply dealers and a fur-buyer will be on hand, so attendees can get needed supplies and sell fur.
    Youngsters will receive a free weasel box and trap and will be in a drawing to win other free trapping supplies.
    Experts will also teach kids and adults how to trap weasels, mink, muskrats, and raccoons and how to properly prepare them for market.
    The workshop is open to the public and admission is free. Lunch and refreshments will be available for purchase throughout the day.
