We had our district meeting on October 2nd.  Attendance was fair even with the low fur prices.  I would like to thank everybody for their donations to the auction and the treats that were brought and everybody’s generous bidding.

The next thing coming up is the Winter Meet at East Central School in Askov on January 7, 2017.  The Legal Defense Banquet will be held Jan. 7th at Askov Community Center.

With fur prices down this would be a great time to give to the tanned fur project.  Or this might be a good time to have some tanned up for yourself, they make nice displays and gifts.

Trapping should be in full swing by now, use common sense in setting your conibears and respect others. 

Take a kid trapping and have a good time.

God Bless,

Greetings fellow trappers!

As I write this report, I look out the window and all the leaves have fallen off the big oak tree in my front yard.   It's hard to imagine that in only a few short weeks dry land season will be open, it's said that time flies as you get older.  I guess it's true.  

November is fast approaching and this year is a big election year.  If you are unsure how you favorite candidates feel concerning trapping issues let them know how you feel.  Send them an email or call them up, or if you see them in person politely tell them you trap and express your views in a civil manner.

I  have been mulling the thought of our district having a winter meeting again. If anyone has any suggestions where, shoot me an email, give me a call or send me a text.  My cell # is (612) 269-1167  Sorry about the 612 area code, that is Verizon's fault.  I have a couple location ideas in mind but am always open for suggestions from the membership.

I'd also like to remind everyone the winter general membership meeting will be help in Askov at the high school, January 7th. It's a good time and a good venue to witness how your organization works. There will be fur buyers there and several vendors plying their wares if you need something.  I understand the DNR will have agents there to tag your otter and bobcats.  Don’t forget the bobcat carcasses at home.  

In closing I'd like to remind you all that the association belongs to the membership. If you have any questions, concerns or just want to converse email me or call.
