Greetings District 2

In our neck of the woods it was a short summer with more than enough rain.

It’s convention time again and I would like to thank Dewey and District 3 for setting up a great convention.  “Great job!”  I also want to thank all the District 2 men and women that helped out at the MTA Booth, Front Gate and Ball Toss.

If everything goes as planned I will have our fall meeting at my place on Sunday, October 2nd at 1:00 p.m.  All trappers are invited.  Bring a youth or a fellow trapper with you.  Invitations will be mailed out soon.

I would like to thank everyone that helped out at the fair booth, especially Rick Olson who replaced me each day.

Fur prices are down this year, so it is a good time to donate to the Tanned Fur Project.

The next event coming up is the winter meeting in Askov, January 7, 2017.

It is time to get the equipment ready for fall, it will be here very soon.

God Bless,



Co-Director - Dan Swedberg

Greetings fellow trappers,

Sorry it has taken me awhile to write a report. Life gets busy some times.  My name is Steve Pahlen and I was elected to be a co-director for District 2 last fall.  I live in Plummer, Minnesota and have trapped pretty much most of my 46 years.  It has been my pleasure to serve you and the MTA.  I'd like to reiterate the association is the members and if you have any questions or concerns email me or call my cell at (612) 269-1167.

Well, it was a great convention and Dewey and company put on a great show.  We will have our fall meeting at Dallas' house in September, hope to see you there.

Lastly, I would like to ask all of you to contact your elected representatives or candidates this fall.  It's an election year and we have had some pretty good battles the past few years and will most likely continue.  If you get a chance this fall and meet any of the candidates courteously remind them that you are a trapper and would like them to keep your interests in mind.
