Notices to Members & Visitors:
2020 is a tough year for many of us, and the MTA is no exception. If you're a trapper and not yet a member of the MTA, please consider joining or making a donation. If you're already a member, be sure to renew your membership when it's due. As a group, we can work hard to preserve our trapping heritage and your right to trap.
Welcome to the
Minnesota Trappers Association
The Minnesota Trappers Association was established in January, 1959 for the sole purpose of "helping to perpetuate the nation's oldest industry - the fur trade". The MTA continues to work hard to preserve the trapping heritage and your right to trap.
