TRAPPING—FOR GOVERNMENT—Is it true that the government hires trappers to catch wolves and mountain lions, and is there a government trapper in Montana? How can I get such a position?
As I understand it, the government trappers are hired by the Supervisor of the National Forests, and it is only in the National Forests where trapping for the government can be carried on. I cannot give you the address of any of these supervisors, but T think you could get them by writing to the Department of Agriculture, Branch of Forest Service, Washington, D.C., and mention the National Forest in which you desire to trap. Of course, you understand that these supervisors would not hire a trapper unless he is an expert at trapping wolves and mountain lions. Regarding a position as forest ranger, you can get full information on same from the Branch of Forest Service. In order to get this position one must be experienced in outdoor life in the west; must know something about surveying; must be able to estimate and scale timber, and must know something about the stock raising business, also must be able to take care of himself when far from civilization, and must know all about the care of pack horses, etc.
