Hunting/snares in Oklahoma

Question
my question is that I have been told that there is a special course available to Oklahoma citizens that upon completion makes it legal to use snares for trapping furbearers. If there is I would certainly be interested. Can you help me in this matter, such as finding where I would need to go to apply for the program?

Answer
Hello Steve,

Yes, several years back they began to allow snaring in Oklahoma...but...only after having taken, and passed, the snaring course.... I am no longer associated with the Oklahoma Trapper's Association, however, you can get an answer to your question by contacting any one of these people... If the link doesn't post, you may have to copy and paste it...but it is the link to the "Officers and Directors" section of the OKLAHOMA FUR BEARERS ALLIANCE, with their phone numbers listed......

Any of these people can help you.

Good luck,

Expertise

I can answer most basic questions concerning predator trapping and some water trapping. Questions about lures, baits, sets, traps, trap treatment, modification, sizes, equipment, usage, etc. I have been certified by the Okla. Dept. of Wildlife Conservation, the old First Okla. Trapper`s Assoc., and the Okla. State Univ. Extension Service as a trapping instructor, and in years past have given classes to people wishing to learn the sport...I also have a couple decades experience in predator calling and can provide some basic answers to these questions as well.

Experience

30+ years running my own traplines, and 60+ years experience as a hunter, shooter, fisherman, and outdoorsman.

Education/Credentials
I have been certified by the Okla. Dept. of Wildlife Conservation, the old First Okla. Trapper`s Assoc., and the Okla. State Univ. Extension Service, as a trapping instructor... I have also received personal instruction from two professional ADC specialists.

Past/Present Clients
As far as teaching what I know to others. I take this to be what you mean here... I have helped my son, and son in law, as well as given classes to a number of other people in this area, to help get them started in trapping and predator calling... I have had personal instruction from 2 professional government ADC specialists, and I have over 30 years experience running my own traplines, and 60+ years of experience in the outdoors...... I have a friend who is a troop leader with the Boy Scouts. In the past I have done several demonstrations on trapping and predator calling for the boys, and on a number of occasions have helped the troop to set up and run a trapline during the winter, with proceeds going to the troop.
