Quarterly Newsletter "Magazine" - Spring 2022
   ...From the Editor
Greetings All,
This issue was produced through collaboration between Keith Larson, our formatting/layout advertising guru, the membership, advertisers, and SJ. Thanks for all your photos and other member/ leadership submitted contributions. I'd like to draw your attention to a particular collaboration between District three's Eric Maijala and I entitled Eric's "Tales from the Trapline. Working together from very humble beginnings," a significant, entertaining, and humorous story emerged from the seed of this brief statement below and a single coyote photo.
See attached picture for a future newsletter, maybe. Short story behind it: I have been fortunate to trap MTA member Bruce Lubitz's land for the last four years. My main target has been coyotes, as I have seen lots of yote signs there. Finally, I caught my first coyote on this property in the fourth year.
That "short story" quickly evolved into a two-part feature article with a third installment to be published at a later date in Question/Answer format consisting of the remainder of the material we simply didn't have room for to include in the articles. I'm attempting to make sure that EVERYONE has a story to tell. Suppose you're willing to provide the story's framework and a few photographs. In that case, I'm certain that working together, we can produce an article that the membership can identify with and enjoy reading. Just ask Eric, Tom Boser, and others that have taken me up on that offer- it was relatively painless.
