Fall 2020 Report
Good evening all,
I don't have much to report at this time but, there are a few things. This coming season will come with new snaring regulations. It will now require all snares(except those placed under water) to have a break away device. For more information on this, there will be a separate article in this newsletter. Be sure to know the new regulations before going into the field. Depending on when you receive this newsletter we will have/held a field day on Sunday September 13 at Shooting Sports in Little Falls MN. 9am start. Pre Registration will be by call/text to me at 320-290-4149. We had another successful raffle. Check out that report for more information. It was sad to be without a summer convention, as so many look forward to that time of the year. On another note, if there is anyone, or know anyone who is willing, we are still seeking a secretary. Please help us fill that position.
Hope to see you all at the winter meeting/banquet in Brainerd in January.
Co-Director - Dale Jindra
Winter 2019 Report
First, I would like to thank Behrant Miller and Matt Carlson for their service to district 4 and the organization, and look forward to seeing them both at future events. Thank you to the District 4 members who entrusted me to represent you in this position.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself for those of you who don’t know me. I am Dale Jindra and grew up trapping in central Minnesota and now reside in Brainerd with my wife of 31 years. We have two wonderful daughters who also have a passion for trapping and the outdoors. We are lucky to have gained a son-in-law Aaron who also has a passion for the outdoors. In May of 2018, Courtney and Aaron blessed our family with our newest trapper, Asher. I suspect that Asher will not be far behind as he grows and tags along with dad and grandpa on the trap line. It is pretty fun to have three generations trapping and I look forward to passing my love for trapping and the outdoors to the future generations. As a family we also are passionate about bear, goose and deer hunting, really anything we can do outdoors as a family is my happy place.
Our family enjoys volunteering for the MTA in different positions because we believe in serving the membership and protecting our rights to trap. Like most families, we have many stories to share and enjoy sharing our passion for the sport. I look forward to doing this through education for our youth and the general public. My hope as your co-director is that my love for the sport will aid me in doing a good job with this position by serving and representing you to the best of my abilities. Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns – cell 218-821-1236 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for reading my ramblings, have a safe and productive trapping season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
