Spring 2021 Report

Hello Fellow Trappers,

Hope all is well, after such a crazy 2020. I will try and do my best to keep politics out of this. Had our BOD mtg on Sat 1/30. a lot of topics came up. Don’t forget to get a hold of Leon or Denise for your Sustaining Membership patches. They are $25 each. All money raised will go to our Legal Defense Fund this year.

Because of this Covid thing, there will be no “Trappers Day at the Capitol”. In the past it has been getting more and more successful, thanks to Randy G.  Always looking for articles and pictures for our newsletter.

Still looking for an MTA secretary, if interested, talk to Todd Roggenkamp.

THE LEGAL DEFENSE BANQUET IS FAST APPROACHING APRIL 10 AT THE BRAINERD LEGION. LOTS OF TICKETS LEFT. CONTACT ANY OF THE JINDRAS FOR YOUR TICKETS. 55/140 ARE SOLD. Summer MTA Convention is July 29, 30, 31 (last weekend of July) in Barnum. If interested in presenting a trapping technique demonstration during the convention, please contact Brian Fischer.
Next year’s winter meeting will be either January 8th or 22nd at the school in Brainerd.

For myself, my season was a little slower than a normal year, but t was mostly my fault. I think my get up and go, got up and left this year. Maybe hearing that the prices were down a little, got to me. It is a hobby for me, and I guess that all of my hobbies cost money. I don’t know of many people that make much money at their hobbies.

I guess never is a long time, and I remember saying that we would never get another dog. Well guess what happened? We got another dog. JoJo is her name, and she is a female Golden Retriever. Cute as a bug’s ear!

Well for now, take care and God Bless,
Dave Curtis

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,
