Summer 2021 Report

Hello Fellow Trappers,
I am sitting here trying to determine whether or not to have a spring meeting, and I am thinking that we are going to pass. I talk to Scott Johnson earlier about it, and some of the concerns were the Covid thing and seating. Another thing that was a concern, was with the average age of the trappers attending the meeting. I am sure that most have had their vaccination shots, but does it pay to take the risk? We had a Board of Director meeting on April 10th and some of the things that came up were;
  • We are still in need of a Recording Secretary, (this is a paid position)
  • We are also looking for a new president and need some nominations for that position.
  • We also will be seeking nomination for the vice president.
Also remember the fall convention this year will be in Barnum; those dates are July 29th-31st. It is always a good time for all. Don't forget the Sustaining Donor Patch is available for $25. There are also few left for 2017,18,19, and 20. Every year the donation is used for a different cause, this year it is being use for the Legal Defense Fund.

There is also a Membership Drive and who ever sign up the most new members will receive $100, 2nd place will receive $75, and 3rd place will receive $50. There are over 6500 trapping licenses sold and we only have 1/3 of them as members. We have currently 2164 members. The prizes will be given out at the convention, so sign the back of the membership you sold. This is the first year we are doing it, so I will have all the bumps out if it next year. Also, stop by the membership booth, and get some membership applications, or ask the coordinator to send you some.
NTA convention is in Spirit Lake, Iowa on the 3rd weekend in July.

Remember if you have anything interesting going on that pertains to trapping to let us know, so we can get it on our Facebook Page or the MTA Website
The Legal Defense Fund Banquet was another great success, thanks to the Jindra family and their help. We grossed approximately $22,000. Not bad for not selling it out this year. Sell out is 140 and they sold 120. Also, a big thank to all the donors, we could not do it without you guys.
Everyone Take Care,
Dave Curtis

Summer 2021 Report

Greetings fellow trappers!
I really don`t have much going on right now, just working and staying home and away from crowds. Recently I did receive two calls from two different landowners with major beaver problems that they wanted me to trap around the end of April so I`m looking forward to that, and I`m sure the landowners will be happy to have the beaver population thinned too! Maybe this is the year I finally get my beaver gloves made! Looking forward to the fishing opener next weekend too, can`t wait! Looks like it’s a go for the Trappers convention this year, it will be July 29-31st in Barnum, look forward to seeing you all there this year, it’s great to be back! Just heard that Governor Walz is just about ready to open things up again, I`m sure we`re all excited to start enjoying things again. That’s about all for now, take care,
