LDWF has partnered with the Louisiana Trappers and Alligator Hunters Association (LTAHA) and the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies to provide a free, voluntary online trapper education course.

Course topics include:

  • Introduction to Trapper Education
  • Historical Considerations
  • Furbearer Management
  • Best Management Practices
  • Running a Trapline
  • Trapping Regulations
  • Types of Traps
  • Trapping Equipment
  • Trapping Safety
  • Responsible Trapping
  • The Market Value of Furbearers

Trapper education is not mandatory in Louisiana, but the information provided in this free course can help current trappers improve their knowledge and provide new trappers with a basic background of the industry. The purpose of this course is to increase active trapper numbers, provide basic trapping knowledge, and teach ethical and law-abiding behavior, as well as to instill public confidence and maintain public support for trapping as a wildlife management tool.

LDWF and the LTAHA also offer hands-on trapping workshops. Workshops are held each winter, generally as full day Saturday events, in both the southern and northern areas of the state. Workshop topics include trap setting for land and water areas, skinning demonstrations, and pelt handling techniques. Workshops are available to teens and adults who have completed the online course.
