Trapping workshop a success

The Alabama Department of Conservation and National Resources hosted a free trapping workshop on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 3 and 4, at the Byrd Volunteer Fire Department fire station in Hamilton. Several residents attended the workshop, which provided instruction on historical aspects of trapping, information about furbearers and proper techniques of trapping.
