The Old Woodsman 2nd Annual Trapping Class was held this past Saturday at instructor Ronnie Vincent's house. The mission of the class to ensure that the tradition of trapping is learned and passed down. Along with Vincent, the class was taught by Jerry Spainhoward, Marty Voiers, and Brandon Vincent.
They taught the basics of trap setting, location, baits and lures, as well as how to safely and properly set your traps. The men also taught the laws on taking, as per KY Fish and Wildlife regulations. Over 60 people attended the event.
"It was great to see everyone come out for the class," said instructor Brandon Vincent. "This is an important tradition that's not taught much anymore. We hope this continues to grow, and we're looking for an even bigger crowd next year."
