Ohio offers a home-study version of trapper education. The Trapper Education Home-Study Manual can be found online at: http://ow.ly/TtaC50CgR7g
We recommend tackling one chapter at a time and answering all the review questions. You then answer the questions from the test booklet and mail in the answer sheet and the completed student registration form. After the exam is scored, you will receive your permanent Trapper Education Course Certification Card if you passed the test. This card can be used to purchase a fur taker permit.
You must purchase a hunting license before you can purchase a fur taker permit. If you haven’t had a chance to complete a hunter or trapper education course, you can purchase an apprentice hunting license and apprentice fur taker permit. To trap, apprentice license and permit holders must be accompanied by a licensed trapper 21 years old or older.
