Be sure to bring along any furs you would like to donate to the Tanned Fur Project. Let’s make it 3 years in a row being the Top Contributors!
Just as a reminder March, 2013 is the deadline for updating all trap tag information.
Once again I would like to encourage all of you to consider becoming a Certified Trapping Instructor. With fur prices increasing, the demand for young trappers is increasing for them to obtain their certification. Let’s give them the opportunity to be certified and make it easier by having several locations within their area.
All should be thinking about having a booth at your county fair or local sport shows to increase interest. It allows us the opportunity to boost interest in trapping and to remind the non-trapping public that trapping is still relevant, alive and thriving. It’s also a great time to boost 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.
Our first wolf season is behind us and in all accounts it was a success. The trappers did very well and unless something changes, we can expect another season in 2014.
The MTA Convention will be in Litchfield on August 16th - 18th Mark your calendars!
Good Luck on your spring beaver line!
