Winter 2021-22 Report

I hope you have had a productive fall on the trapline. Two weeks of ice -free trapping for me has been a blessing compared to last fall. The only problems I've had has been 1 hole in my waders, 1 flat tire and a bad wheel bearing on the ATV trailer. The Board of Directors clarified raffles at our district meetings, any raffle money must go only to the youth education fund. We can have a separate freewill offering for a lunch expense donation, if you have any questions feel free to ask me at our next meeting. The Association will also be making a annual donation to support the NTA and FTA. Don't forget about the upcoming winter meeting in Brainerd on January 22nd. Bring your largest beaver tail, muskrat tail and heaviest raccoon for the contest. It would be nice to see a few more district members in the Pelt handling contest too. If you're looking for somewhere to spend your fur check consider attending the Legal Defense Banquet later that evening, a very good meal, and a fun night. There is a MTA Calendar Fundraiser for 2022 coming soon so be looking for that, there are also a couple of other fundraisers in the works. There has been some movement on the Lynx lawsuit look for more information on this coming soon. Our next district meeting is March 12th, 2022, in Cotton.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and good luck on the line.

Winter 2021-22 Report:
Congratulations to Paul Z on becoming District 1 Director.
We essentially switched places and I will assist him in the district now. I still plan on being in International Falls on 02/26 at 2pm at Meyers Glass for an informal/no agenda meeting. Our regular spring meeting is scheduled for the Cotton Community Center on 03/12 opening doors at 8am with the meeting at 10am. Running less traps at home and doing some trapping on trips has been a neat experience. I hope to do some out of state running before the next Newsletter.
