Fur handling clinic in Libby

Print Article

A fur handling clinic is planned for Saturday, March 16 in Libby at 2318 Granite Creek Road from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The clinic, offered by the Montana Trappers Association and the Montana Fur Harvesters, is open to anyone looking for a hands-on opportunity to learn about fur handling techniques, ethics and safety.

Participants should bring a chair and dress warmly. A lunch will be provided.

This clinic is not a general trapper education or wolf trapper class. For more information on those opportunities, contact Tom Fieber 250-3386 or tfieber@bresnan.net.

This is a great opportunity to learn how to handle furs from skinning, fleshing, cleaning, stretching and marketing. Some of the best Montana instructors will be working throughout the day. It’s a great way to see how others do it.

This clinic is open to everyone interested in trapping and fur handling. Bring the family, no age limits.

Memberships to MTA or MFH will be available to those interested. There will also by games for children to win “goodies.”

There will be prizes to be raffled at the end of the day, with tickets sold at the door.

Organizers plan to have a trapping supply vendor at the event, allowing those in need of supplies to save on shipping costs.

Organizers request that those interested RSVP to enable them to better plan lunches.
