Minnesota Trappers Association Fur Takers of America (FTA) Director's Report
2022 Winter Report
FTA President Dave Hastings did not seek another term. I would like to thank Dave for the leadership he provided to the FTA. Jason Wisniewski will be stepping into the President’s position. The election results are in. The newly elected directors are Bryan Nelson- Virginia; Skye Goode-Wisconsin; Linda White-New York; Dan Gates,-Colorado; Ron Peters-Wisconsin. Terms begin January 2023.The 2023 FTA National Rendezvous will be held in Jefferson Wisconsin, from June 22 to 24. Jefferson is about 40 miles east of Madison. Reservations are open for the 2023 Trappers College, September 10 -16. This should be a good event. The membership drive is taking place now through the end of the year. Recruit 10 or more new members and be entered into a drawing for a New Brunswick spring bear hunt! Christmas is coming. A membership would be the perfect gift for those hard-to-buy relatives. Remember to follow the FTA on Facebook, our general website (www.furtakersofamerica.com) or our education website (www.furbearereducation.com) As I write this, trapping season is just around the corner. I hope everyone will be able to get out and enjoy the fall weather on the trapline.
