Spring 2019 Report

Greetings fellow trappers, are you liking all this snow?  One thing is for sure we are have a good old fashioned winter as are many other areas of the US.  Hopefully it will stimulate fur sales.

I’m going to try and keep my report short as most things will be covered elsewhere in this issue.  First thing I’d like to touch on is the seemingly larger presence of USDA beaver trappers.  I’ve been getting a few people contacting me about this. I would like to start doing some documentation on this to see how big of a problem it may be.  If you are having issues I would ask that you contact me or one of the other directors so we can attend to this issue.

The second thing is summer convention, as always District 2 will have different duties if you can volunteer some time it would be appreciated.  Keep an eye out in the summer newsletter for what dates and times we’ll have.

Finally and as always I’d like to remind everyone that it seems that our trapping privileges and heritage are constantly under attack by the antis and varying politicians in this state and nationally.  As of this writing, I know of three bills going around in MN that could curtail our activities and I expect more.  If we as a group don’t put up a strong unified front against these attacks our children won’t recognize trapping as we know it.  The more people that contact their legislators and educate them about what we do and who we are the better it will be.  In my opinion, a unified front isn’t only about keeping what we have but also trying to advance some of our agendas that were voted on by the membership.  We’ll keep working towards those goals and the more people that show up the easier it’ll be.  I’ll get off my box for now.  If anyone of you gets a chance give Randy Goldenman an atta boy for all the work and effort he has contributed at the capitol.   Thanks Randy

I’ll get off my box for now.
Regards Steve
