Spring 2022 Report
By the time of this report, I hope most of you had a fun and successful time on the trapline. As most of us have found out by now that fur prices are at an all-time low. So that means there is and will be a lot of control work to be done. (at least for myself- coon and beaver mainly). NTA, FTA, and New Mexico Trapper's Association in a joint effort will be suing the state of New Mexico to overturn its ban of trapping on public lands on constitutional grounds. There will be fundraisers set up designated for that lawsuit. NTA and FTA will be filing as intervenors in Idaho and Minnesota along with their local associations. Similar fundraising accounts will be set up. Gary Leistico will be representing all three states.
In December the NASC (National Assembly of Sportsman Caucus) was held in Little Rock, Arkansas. With many of the NTA and FTA's leaders in attendance, we were represented very well. Thanks to all that generously gave of their time on behalf of the trappers of this country.
The 2022 NTA Convention will be held in Lima, Ohio July 28th – 30th.
