NEOSHO, Mo. -- The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will hold a cable restraint trapping certification class from noon to 4 p.m. on Oct. 27 at the Neosho National Fish Hatchery.

When used correctly, cable restraint devices can hold animals alive and allow trappers to release non-target animals unharmed. The devices can be used to take furbearers during the state’s furbearer trapping season (Nov. 15 - Jan. 31) by trappers who have successfully completed a cable-restraint training course, validated by a certified instructor.

This course will cover the basics of safely and legally utilizing cable restraints to capture furbearers. Regulations, proper set location and cable restraint construction will be discussed.

Interested individuals are asked to pre-register by calling MDC Wildlife Management Biologist Frank Loncarich at 417-452-3879.
