Become a Trapper Education Instructor

Preserve the Legacy and History of Trapping in NH

Safe, Responsible, Knowledgeable, and Involved

Trapper Ed Instructors leading a classDo you enjoy sharing your knowledge of trapping with others? If so, this opportunity may be of interest to you. The NH Fish and Game Department is recruiting volunteer Trapper Education Instructors.

Trapper Education in New Hampshire is taught by volunteers who have a passion for promoting safe, responsible, and ethical trapping practices. Fish and Game needs your help: instructor numbers are low even as the demand for classes rises. Consider passing on your knowledge, expertise and passion for trapping activities.

The process for becoming an instructor is easy; the yearly commitment is minimal, as low as a few hours a year, and the results are gratifying. With your help, new trappers will understand why trapping is used as a wildlife management tool and the many benefits it provides to the public and wildlife. As an instructor, you also help fund the Fish and Game Department by volunteering your time towards a federal grant that is crucial to fund the Fish and Game department and its many missions.
