Summer 2022 Report
Hello Trappers,

As of May 1 it's looking very good that the anti-trapping bills introduced in the legislature will not be moving forward. The deadlines have passed for new bills and there have been no anti-trapping amendments to the environmental omnibus bill or any other bills that we are aware of.  Although anything can still happen right up to the end of the legislative session, it’s far more likely that there will be nothing bad concerning trapping coming out this year. That is good news. We're already looking forward to next year's legislative session. If things go as forecasted in the next election in November, there will hopefully and likely be a friendlier atmosphere as far as getting some pro-trapping things passed, including non-resident trapping, and if the feds allow a wolf season. Time will tell. On a sad note, we're losing some friends of trapping after this legislative session is over. Representative Dale Lueck and Senators David Tomassoni and Tom Bakk are all retiring. That is not good news for us as all three have been very influential in years past in getting anti-trapping legislation killed. Hopefully, the people elected to take their places will be as trapping-friendly as those three were. Many thanks to those three for all they've done for us in the past. Hopefully, the State Office Building will be open again next year so we can visit the new legislators to see how they stand on trapping and have a Trapper's Day at the Capitol again. Educating legislators is key to how we continue to trap in the future. Be safe out there,
Randy Goldenman
