Summer 2022 Report

Hello everyone,
Looking forward to returning to Wadena for our summer convention, it’s been a while. Convention District Duties: Gate Thursday, August 4th, 12 pm-5 pm. MTA Booth Friday 2 pm-5 pm Ideally we’d prefer 5 or 6 members for each duty station. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looking forward to our district hosting, our 2023 convention at a very nice location, the Kandiyohi County Fairgrounds in Willmar, August 3rd -5th.

Our district will again be manning an information booth at Prairie Pothole Days west of New London close to Sibley State Park on Saturday, September 10th. (There will also be signs posted to direct you).
We’ll be displaying tanned fur for education and sale, distributing information on our sport and Association, the Trapper Education Program as well as giving out wildlife coloring and track identification books to youths.

We will host a Trapper Education Field Training Session on Saturday, September 17th.  Time and location TBA on MTA website and Facebook page. This session is scheduled for six hours total, and we’ll cover trap preparation, fur, and track identification in addition to trapping technique demonstrations for both land and water species as well as proper fur handling. Graduates under the age of 16 are eligible for a one-year no-cost MTA membership including Trappers Post and the Newsletter magazine upon completion. Please advise interested parties to complete the online exam prior to attending.
Take care,
Pete, Matt and Shawn
