    You would not use try and except for this.


    Try and except us used for trapping errors such as those generated when you try to convert a string to an int.

    You are trying to "range check" and input and you could use a while loop as below:

    while True:

        num = int(input ("get number"))

        if num > 0 and num < 3:     break


    If it works - please update the post and +1
