    MONTPELIER — Vermont officials are reminding trappers that state law requires them to complete a training course instructing them on rules, regulations and humane trapping methods.

    The state’s trapping season starts Oct. 27. State-owned land is open to trapping, but trappers must get permission from private landowners.

    The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department oversees the harvest of 13 common species of furbearers ranging from weasels to coyotes.
