snare certification

I just started trapping this year and everything I know I learned from my pap. He never used snares so I was asking some other local guys and I'm wondering if anyone knows how I go about getting certified to use them. Thanks!

Re: snare certification

Keep checking the Pennsylvania Game Commission web site. They will be listed as Cable Restraint Certification.

The horizon is your starting point.

Re: snare certification

they are cable restraints not snares. LOL the conservation officer at my cert class said we should correct people on this matter. snares kill and CR's hold the animal there. its all in how we present ourselves to the non trapping public eye that will preserve our sport

Re: snare certification

snares ARE used for beaver under water,cr's are above ground,so there is two words for the same piece of equipment.

true pleasure is a pair of red eyes coming at you in the night

Re: snare certification

why are you allowed snares for beaver, is it because you have little to no chance or catching a dog or cat in a water set for beaver but you could on land for a K9

Re: snare certification

just took the CR class over the weekend. 15 bucks, about 3.5 hrs, and easy as it gets. as always, there's more to the laws than what they put in the digest so you learn some of them there, though still no word on what counts as setting bait visible from the air and the required distance away. overall though, its an easy class and doesnt take long, so if you think you want to use CR's, sign up for one when you can as classes usually fill up beforehand. we had a couple drive almost 3 hrs for it because of availability, or lack thereof.
