AFI Trapping 101 Part III

As part of our 2024 Lunch and Learn series designed to bring our knowledge and instruction to the entire BHA membership rather than just the 2800 participants of our AFI events we are proud to present Trapping 101 Part III.


 We have attached all the continued reading docs, helpful videos, and source links for continued learning as well as links to the slide show.  Please visit the BHA YouTube channel for the entire series in a video form.

About Trevor Hubbs

I grew up running hounds on coyotes and raccoons, spent a fair amount of time public land waterfowl hunting, and have hunted upland birds behind my setters across the midwest.
