Summer 2020 Report

Don’t have much to report on at this time. Encourage everyone to sell their raffle tickets being the convention was canceled. The convention was rescheduled for the same place next year because it was canceled this year.

I hope everyone is surviving the big scare, and staying home and practicing safe distancing.

My brother and I did a little beaver trapping this spring, it was fun. I drove the vehicle, he did all the work.

I, like I have nothing else to do, got into bees this yr. pretty interesting stuff right there. I started with 2 hives, up to 3 hives right now. I captured a swarm of bees, on a neighbors property. I don’t think he would have contacted me if it weren’t for me trapping coyotes on his property.

Our last BOD mtg was done on the phone because of Covid19. Things we talked about were the convention and we voted unanimously to cancel it. Talked about ways to adjust our budget for the yr. Going to cut back on some of the MTA Newsletters, there will be plenty for all the members but decided to cut back on the extras being published.

Can’t think of anything else offhand, so,
Take care and God Bless,

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,
