Greetings Trappers,

District 3 will be holding our Spring Meeting on Friday, March 14th at 7:00 p.m. at the Ottertail Power Community Room, which is located at 215 South Cascade Street in Fergus Falls.

One of our main focuses of this meeting will be to distribute the Zip Tie Dog Release Kits.  We welcome all of your ideas and suggestions on getting these kits well distributed throughout our District.

We should all be thinking about having a booth at your county fair or local sport shows to increase interest.  These opportunities boost interest in trapping and remind the non-trapping public that trapping is still relevant, alive and thriving.  It’s also a great time to increase our raffle sales and make new trapping contacts.  Feel free to contact me with any materials you may need to make your booth a success.

With the increased interest in trapping, and the popularity of the online trappers education, there is a growing demand for field day classes to complete their certification.  Putting on a field day is easy and gratifying.  Please consider hosting one of these classes.

This year’s MTA Convention will be held in Barnum, August 1st – 3rd.

Good Luck on your Spring Beaver Line!
