Winter 2019 Report

Hello Trappers,

I hope all your trapping is going well. I have been having an ok season, with lots of red fox this yr, don’t know why. Think maybe I have hit the coyotes hard enough the last few years that maybe the reds are coming back a little.

Also don’t forget about the Winter mtg coming up again in Brainerd, MN. Then that night following the mtg it will be the Legal Defense Banquet and the American Legion in Brainerd.

The MTA has hired “OUR OWN” lobbyist this year to help us at the capitol to better endorse the Non-Resident trapping in the state. We are trying to get this through. We thought it was our best interest to go it alone, to get this done.

FEBUARY 8TH WILL BE THE DISTRICT 5 MEETING AT JOHNSONS FUR IN WILMAR AGAIN. DOORS WILL OPEN AT 8 MEETING, WILL BE AT 10. THERE ONCE AGAIN WILL BE ALOT OF DOOR PRICES, AND DONATION. IF YOU. HAVE ANYTHING TO DONATE BRING IT WITH FOR THE RAFFLE. I believe this is the 26th yr of having our spring meeting at Scott’s place. Be sure to thank him for all he has done to endorse the fur industry. Just a thank you would be great.

Thanks everyone,
Co-Director - Pete Jonas
June 2019 Report

Hello Everyone,
I am having a Trapping Field Training Class that will be held sometime in late August to early September. Still currently waiting on dates the Kimball Rod and Gun Club have open. If you have completed the online course or plan to, give me a call and I will put you on the list.

The summer MTA convention is coming up in August. If you can volunteer it will be very much appreciated. We always are looking for help setting up tables, building the demo areas, and cleaning up the fairgrounds when the convention is over.

Take Care,
Pete Jonas

Fall 2019 Report

Hello fellow trappers:

The days are getting shorter and my thoughts are returning to the trapline, getting ready to chase fur once again!

The summer convention in Redwood Falls was well attended from what I could see, and the Weather was much nicer this year. The number of raffle tickets sold increased quite a bit this year from previous years so that was a nice bonus.

We just had our District 5 meeting on August 31st and the turnout was smaller than hoped for, but we did manage to raise some funds for the MTA as always, so that’s good.

Pretty soon it will be time to start dyeing traps again and getting my scouting done and permissions lined up.  Looking forward to doing some grouse hunting in the next couple weeks and checking out the fall colors, take care,
