Greetings District 4.
I just returned from the convention. District 5 did an excellent job. Thanks Pete, Jerry, and Mark.
I want to personally thank the District 4 members who worked the gate and MTA booth. Butch Lodin, Jim Anderson, Dave Pearson, Mike Rayes, Toby Armstrong, Tim Bauer, Mary Bauer, David Bauer, Jerry Madsen, Deb VanDriel, Nate Benkofske, Marilyn Anderson and Dave Peterson. Plenty of good help makes things easy.
A few items from the DNR, if you have not already heard them:
· Spring Beaver Closer– April 30, 2014
· Fisher marten – 6 days total of 2 - any combo
· Wolf season – 325 licenses for trappers
· Wolf export – is out of DNR hands, call instate fur buyers for possible sale
The board is looking for a MTA member to represent us on the FTA Board as Gabby wants to retire. There is a Boy Scout event coming up in Stearns County and Deb Offerdahl needs help. Six people would be nice, if you can help, give her a call.
We will be having our Fall meeting on October 16th at Wealthwood Rod and Gun Club. Doors open at 5:00 p.m., meeting at 6:00 p.m. The main item is this is an election year for our district. Any new information regarding the MTA will be dispersed at that time. If you have anything you want brought before the board, please call me at 218-851-5989.
Till next time,
