GUYS MILLS — The Erie National Wildlife Refuge is now accepting bids for trapping on the refuge. The refuge has nine trapping units in the Sugar Lake Division and seven units in the Seneca Division. Bids are due by today at 1 p.m. at the refuge headquarters at 11296 Wood Duck Lane, Guys Mills, which will also be the time of the public bid opening.

To submit a bid, trappers must complete an application for trapping form, which can be obtained at the refuge office. Maps showing the trapping units are available from the refuge office.

Bids were originally due on Oct. 2 before the federal government shutdown closed the refuge and postponed the public bid opening.
