Sanborn County hosts trapping workshop

For the second year in a row, the Sanborn County Extension Office was able to host a trapping workshop on Saturday, Oct. 12, at the 4-H Building in Forestburg. This opportunity was open to all interested adults and kids.  Darold Bitterman and Mike Piehl of Mitchell were on hand to lead the group through the various trapping techniques.   

After discussing the different types of traps used in the area, the group was able to get actual hands-on experience when they headed outdoors. The youth were excited to look for animal tracks, trails and droppings in the area. Once trails were located, they spent time discussing the different options of where to set the traps.  Involvement in the process of looking and then watching Darold set actual traps helped the whole group gain knowledge, skill and understanding in trapping.

To end the workshop, County Commissioner Gary Blindauer generously donated a jack-knife, three live traps and snares to be given away at the workshop.  After the drawing and receiving these items, a very happy group of participants were excited to try their hand at trapping.
