Fall 2020 Report

Hello Trappers,
Because of all the cancellations, it has taken me a while to come up with a report this time. As of now, you know the convention has been canceled. And the meetings have been kind of goofy also.

What I do know is that this year we will need to add BAD’s (breakaway devices), to all of our drylands snares. They are saying it should be a #350 BAD.

District 5 will be holding our fall meeting on Sept 13th. We will try a Sunday for once to see if it improves our attendance at the fall mtg. It will be at the Kimball Gun Club, one heck of a nice facility.

This fall, when you vote, think about whether you want to continue hunting, fishing, trapping, and enjoying the great outdoors. This could be one of the most important elections we have had in yrs.
    • Think about your decision.
    • Remember what you might be giving up.
    • Understand the importance of managing our great outdoors.
    • Many folks will not vote, so encourage your friends to vote.
    • Please pray so that this pandemic and violence come to an end.
Now is the time to tie up your farmers for the fall. So get out and start knocking on some doors.
God Bless and have a great fall.

Summer 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

Spring 2020 Report

Greetings  fellow trappers!

We just had our spring District 5 meeting at Johnson Fur , which was well attended again,  we sold a lot of raffle tickets again and I was happy to see some kids in the crowd again.  We had a special raffle for them and they all went home with a prize.
Trappers day at the capitol is going to be Tuesday March 24th.

Come and make a difference in the defense of trapping. If you can, get a car pool together with other trappers in your area. If you want, we can help you schedule a meeting with your legislators and go with you into the meetings to talk about trapping.

Legal defence banquet was a huge success again this year with all the tickets selling out. Summer convention is coming up and will be in Barnum this year; hope to see you there!

Take care,
