Trapping for furbearers during Missouri's trapping season provides some people with additional revenue through the sale of pelts. It also is a good way to control some animal populations. A free Missouri Department of Conservation trapping clinic will be held Oct. 3 and 4 at the Robert E. Talbot Conservation Area in Lawrence County.
Browse Missouri trapping topics, including fur auction results, furbearer program report and records, making trapping lures, history of trapping in Missouri, trapping coyotes, and use of cable restraints in Missouri.
