      MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Trappers Association and the state Department of Natural Resources are planning a series of wolf trapping classes around the state this fall.

      The classes will cover the wolf season framework, wolf ecology, trapping ethics and responsibility and hands-on trap demonstrations.

      The courses are scheduled for Sept. 13 in Iron River; Sept. 20 in Grantsburg; Sept. 27 in Madison; Oct. 4 in Milladore; and Oct. 11 in Rhinelander.

      The classes won't satisfy the DNR's requirement that wolf trappers complete a state trapper education course, however. The agency considers the classes voluntary.
