Greetings Trappers!

Many of you may already be aware that our Co-Director, Larry Anderson suffered a stroke on June 10th.  He would like to thank everyone for their thoughts, cards and prayers.  They are helping as he will be heading back home in the very near future.

We will be holding our fall meeting on October 13th at 7:00 p.m. at the New York Mills VFW which is located at 120 North Boardman Avenue right on Highway 10.

Another successful convention has come and gone.  I would first of all like to thank all of the volunteers (way too many to call out by name) that devoted their time into making it a success.  We could not have done it without all of you.  Mark your calendars for next year’s convention that will take place in Barnum on August 2-4, 2018.  Come donate some time, take in a demo or two and meet your fellow trappers.

Congratulations to Chris Ahart for his generous contributions to the Tanned Fur Project which rewarded him with the Individual 2017 Tanned Fur Project Award.  Way to go Chris!!

Soon it will be time to take to the fields and streams.  Remember to take someone new trapping and consider sharing your knowledge by becoming an instructor.  One of the most gratifying things you can do is get someone interested on our sport.

Happy Trapping,




Co-Director - Larry Anderson
