Spring 2024 Report

Greetings everyone, I hope the New Year is off to a good start for you. The temperatures have finally been cold enough to make ice and safely get on the ponds and lakes to fish or trap beavers. Our D1 spring meeting is set for Saturday, March 9th at the Grand Lake Town Hall in Twig, it’s next to the fire hall at the intersection of Highway #53 and #7.  No postcards are being sent. Let me know if you have any suggestions for speakers you’d like to see. Trappers Day at the Capital is being planned for some time in March, watch the website for the date, or if you are interested in going pre-register with me and I will coordinate carpools. The Sustaining Donor Program has been launched for 2024 featuring a raccoon patch. Proceeds for this year’s sales will go to MTA’s Legal Defense Fund. This great program has raised nearly $24,000 since beginning in 2017. Our gun raffle ticket prices have increased to $5 each with all profits deposited in our Education Fund. The 2024 convention will be held in Little Falls on August 1-3rd. Additional information will be published in the Newsletter and posted on the MTA website and Facebook platforms once details have been finalized. 

Membership questions regarding membership status or renewals should be directed to Jo McElmury Membership Coordinator.

Watch your mailbox for a letter from President Fischer outlining our 2024 goals.
