Summer 2021 Report

Hello Everyone!

MTA’s Convention is scheduled for July 29-31 in Barnum, MN. For more information or to volunteer, contact John Backman (218) 780-3238 or MTA_1@gmail.com. Unless somethings changes with the Covid situation, it looks like it’s a go! I’m really looking forward to getting back to some sense of normalcy and enjoying the convention and time spent with fellow trappers.

Each year our organization gives out various awards to worthy individuals. There are nomination forms in this newsletter, please take a moment and nominate someone who has gone above and beyond for trapping. The deadline to nominate is July 1st, so don’t delay. We need some time to get the awards ordered.

Our Tanned Fur Project is always looking for good fur donations. Contact your District Director to donate or for help in getting the donated fur put up.
This is our 5th year for the Sustaining Donor Program. The proceeds this year will go towards the Legal Defense Banquet. Please consider donating by contacting Top Lot Stretcher Company at (507)360-6935 for a commemorative patch.

I have enjoyed representing the MTA as your Vice President over the last four years as well as serving on the board for many years. I look forward to continuing to work with my fellow members at various events and I encourage everyone to get more involved and volunteer to help to protect and progress our sport.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 218-639-9311.
