Vice President's Report

September - 2017

Hello Fellow MTA Members,

I’d like to thank everyone for their support.  I am extremely excited about what the future holds for the MTA and I am honored to be your Vice President.  I am looking forward to working side by side with all of you.  If you have any questions, concerns or ideas please don’t hesitate to contact me.

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, meet your fellow trappers and better yet bring a new trapper with you.

The Winter Meeting will be held on January 6, 2018 at the East Central High School in Askov right off of the Banning Junction.  The DNR will be present to tag bobcats and otters. 

The Legal Banquet will be held on the evening of January 6th at the Askov Community Center.  Contact Gary Meis at (320) 838-1570 to secure your tickets (please refrain from calling after 9:00 p.m.).

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 in our sport.

Happy Trapping,
