Minnesota Trappers Association
FTA Director Report
Another trapping season is upon us and I hope everyone is busy filling their stretchers and/or freezers. I have not set a trap yet, Barb had back surgery and is improving every day. I just will not be able to get traps out, until I get back from deer hunting. Hopefully there will be a few deer and the wolves did not get them all. The locals tell us a good number of them was harvested in our area last year. Here's hoping that this will be another good year. I have received a few calls for beaver so there should also be some rats at those locations. A couple of things to remember if you have good luck on the trapline save at least two pelts for the tanned fur project. Also save some of that money and come to the winter meeting and sign up for a FTA membership. I will also take and renew you if need be and if possible I will have some hats and books. I look forward to seeing you all. Above all, if you have questions, concerns or you need some info about the FTA please stop and see me. I know this is short but right now things are kind of busy around here.As the weather starts getting a little cooler and ice starts to form, please be careful.
