September - 2016
The MTA summer convention, which was held August 11 - 13, at the Ottertail County Fairgrounds, Fergus Falls, MN, has just concluded. I was fortunate to be able to attend all three days and would like to thank the District 3 membership for hosting a great summer convention. It was very well attended and the weather cooperated.
Being the new District 6 Co-Director, I really enjoyed meeting the other district members and putting faces to names. Special thanks to Jon Longfellow and Brad Wobbrock for showing me around and making introductions. I was able to attend several of the trapping demos and can't express how much knowledge and information one can learn from attending these. If you are a novice trapper, or a seasoned veteran, one can always pick up new ideas and methods. Great job instructors.
Hope everyone is still planning on getting out on the trapline this fall, in spite of the projected prices for our pelts. If prices are not what you were hoping for, get some fur tanned, have articles of clothing made from your furs, or donate some of your pelts to the Tanned Fur Project. Also, remember to introduce someone new to the trapline this year!
Stay safe on the trapline and have a great season,
