Hello Trappers,

Well it's been a long winter, and that messed up the spring beaver season. I hope you were able to get out a little.

The MTA was visiting a quite a few Pheasants Forever Banquets this spring. We had a good time at each, and we had a quite a few questions and it was all positive. We need to strive to educate and work with the other outdoor groups. This is where you can make a huge difference. Take the time to show and tell the other sportsmen what trapping is all about. These little chats prove to have big dividends in the future. So please take the time to educate.  The interest in trapping at firearms safety classes continues to grow.  This is another opportunity to educate. 

 Now for some fun stuff, the convention will be in Barnum and the volunteer duty times should be in this newsletter. Please take the time to help out, it's fun work! Some of our district members will be doing face painting as well. Of course, there are plenty of good demos as well. District one is hosting and I’m sure Bert, Frank, and Mike will put on a good show. 

It sounds like next year the wolf haters will be back at it, so let your representatives know you want to  leave the season the way it is.

Please have a great and safe summer. 

God Bless,

Jerry Larsen

Hello everyone,

Well we got some spring beaver trapping in.   The folks up north got two weeks longer but the last few years they weren't able to get out much.
Jerry, Dave and I set up a booth at Cabela's in Rogers on Saturday, May 3rd.  We displayed tanned fur, talked trapping, and handed out some zip ties.  We were well received by all.

We are starting to plan our field training day for September; we will again have it at the Kimball Rod & Gun Club.  We will be making water and land sets, dyeing traps, skinning, fleshing and putting up fur

Take care,
