 Beginner Trapper Connection
*Designed for kids, youth and any age beginner
Beginner Trappers Connection in it's 8th season at Wadena, 2022.
BTC is a program designed for kids, youth, or any age beginner.

Hard to believe that we launched the Beginner Trapper Connection program back in 2014. Had it not been for COVID forcing the cancellation of one summer’s convention this would have been the ninth year of the program. As a result, 2022 will officially be our eighth anniversary of BTC.

We have come a long way from presenting under a tree on a picnic table. Thanks to our organization and many supporters the kids now get a tent for cover, sound system and their own demo area. New and seasoned presenters make this a valuable experience for all.

What’s in it for kids? Fourteen different items. Every demo comes with a vendor sponsor. Once a presentation has been completed the instructor will hand out a certificate for kids to search out vendor and receive the item related to that specific demo. This creates excitement and interaction among the kids, instructors, and vendors.

As fellow trappers and MTA members, take the time to thank presenters and vendor sponsors for their contribution to helping us grow the organization through time, knowledge, or resources.

Pass it On, Brian
