Interest in wolf trapping in Montana has surprised officials at Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. Spokesman Ron Aasheim says over 1,700 requests for more information about wolf trapping certification courses have been received, and classes are overflowing.

Aasheim says classes that normally top out at 50 participants are now being expanded to hold 60. Aasheim says even experienced trappers are learning new and more effective techniques in the certification classes. Classes are being held in September and October, as well as in December at various locations throughout the state.
