The VTA is dedicated to trapper education, whether it be with the non-trapper, the veteran trapper or the young trapper.  Currently, we are working in conjunction with the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries to establish a trapper training education program.  Similar in nature to the hunter's education program, we feel this program will help all trappers learn the basics & the essentials of humane wildlife conservation, by way of trapping.
