If you've ever wanted to learn the basics of live-trapping small animals or if you want to improve your trapping technique, plan to attend an informational workshop sponsored by Colorado Parks and Wildlife in Montrose, 6-8 p.m., Jan. 11.

The class will be held at the CPW office in Montrose, 2300 S. Townsend Avenue.

This is an introductory course for participants to learn the basics of successfully setting cage traps.

Small game and furbearer populations are healthy in western Colorado, providing trappers unique opportunities for capturing animals. The workshop will also be helpful for landowners who may want to know more about how to use traps to help protect their property from nuisance animals.

Wildlife officers will lead the presentation on cage trapping. They'll discuss animal biology, trap location, trap sets, use of lure/bait/attractants, skinning, fleshing, stretching and more.

The class is free, but will be limited to 25 people. Registration is required. To register, call the Montrose CPW office at 970-252-6000.
