Spring 2020 Report

Hello fellow trappers,

District 5 held its Spring meeting on Feb 1st at Scott Johnson's in Willmar, MN. This was Scott’s 27th year of holding this spring mtg at his place. We had one heck of a turnout, with right around 60 folks showing up.

Had a great raffle drawing, with lots of participation from the trappers. I want to thank the members of District 5 for their continued support in the raffle. Held a special raffle drawing for the 16 and under kids present. Six kids went home with their own special gift. Some of these kids are always at the mtgs and running door prizes, so I always make an effort to thank them somehow.

Things talked about were, wolf and lynx issues, spring and damage control on beaver. One thing that everyone would like is, uniformity from our CO’s on what can and cannot be done with beaver control. One warden will tell his people that they need to get his permission to trap beaver, the other will say just tell me what you caught.

Legal Defense Banquet was a great success with all tickets being sold out. Great job LDB crew, who does it better?

Remember the Sustaining Membership patches, $25/patch. All proceeds going to promote and marketing the MTA.

Dont forget the fall convention, it will be in Barnum again this year.  Take care friend and God Bless.

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

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,
