Winter 2021-22 Report:
I hope everyone has had the opportunity to get out and enjoy the nice fall weather. Fur Takers of America and the National Trappers Association continue to work together on several different fronts to combine their resources and influence to defend trapping more effectively. One of primary importance is a lawsuit that has been filed to fight the recent ban on trapping public lands in New Mexico. Only by working together can we overcome such obstacles. A prime example of this alliance was demonstrated in the NTA Lifetime Achievement Award being presented to FTA’s Vice President Gary Jepson recently. We are also working together to make a presentation to the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation in December. We continue to work with and support the Sportsmen’s Alliance. Recently the Sportsmen’s Alliance introduced “Conservation Adventures” which is a curriculum being offered in dozens of schools in Ohio. The curriculum presents conservation in science classes, engages youth to actively participate in hunting, fishing, and trapping. Pennsylvania is the latest state to implement such curriculum. As we get ready for the Minnesota legislative season to begin, it is important that you, the members of our Association stay informed on what is happening in St. Paul, around the country, and to remain in contact actively and consistently with all legislators and lawmakers.
