I'm teaching a trapping class at the beginning of next month to boy scouts. Ages 12-16 I have to cover types of traps, terrain, types of animals, bait, how to kill the animal, how to clean it and safety not in that order.
The biggest issue I have with teaching this class is I have to teach them how to kill the animal and how to clean it. This is my first time teaching this to really any one I've been doing it now for a couple of years but I don't really know how to go about teaching the kill. I had an idea for bringing a cage rabbit and just showing them rather then just talking about it but I don't know.
You have any ideas anything I might of missed or just pointers, or anything helpful? I'm only really teaching three types of traps, dead fall, snare, and live trap. The biggest part of safety is making sure this ain't nam and they ain't ranbow so no human traps.
this is just going to be a basic course...
