In our neck of the woods, up north, the winter has been nice.  Just a few cold days, not too much snow and fairly mild, making it good for everyone but the ice fishermen and the resorts.

On January 9th in Askov the Winter Meet was fairly well attended.  The vote by the MTA members on non-residential trapping passed and will be sent to the appropriate state agencies.  The Legal Defense Banquet was again well prepared thanks to Buzz and the banquet committee.  Everyone had a good time.

District 3 is hosting the 2016 Summer Convention in Fergus Falls at the Ottertail County Fairgrounds August 11-13, 2016.  I will post District 2’s work schedule in the next newsletter.

Raffle tickets are ready so get yours and start selling.  It’s all for the youth trappers education - who else will keep trapping going.

The Tanned Fur Project can always use fur and with the low prices why not donate some?

It won’t be long before spring beaver trapping will be ready to go. 

Go out have some fun and be safe.

God Bless,

Hi, my name is Steven Pahlen.  I was elected as a new District 2 co-director in September to help out Dallas and Danny.  I live in Plummer with my five children.  I am excited to be on the board to help out and serve the membership. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call on my cell (612) 269-1167.  As most of you know many of our trapping privileges were under review last winter at the state capitol and this winter could very well be the same.  It might be a good to get to know your elected senators and representatives. 

Good luck with spring beaver.
