Spring 2021 Report

Hello Everyone!  

The Legal Defense Banquet has been rescheduled for April 10 2021 at the Brainerd American Legion 708 Front Street Brainerd. To purchase tickets, contact Katelyn Jindra at (218)820-5797.  For all other information or to make a donation, contact Dale Jindra at (218)821-1236.
Due to COVID restrictions we will not be holding our Trapping Day at the Capitol this year.  It’s important to be watching our Facebook and Web Page for details concerning laws that could negatively affect trapping.  Voicing your opinion to your legislator is imperative. Hopefully, we will be able to have our Summer Convention, scheduled for July 29-31 in Barnum. For more information or to volunteer, contact John Backman (218) 780-3238 or MTA1@gmail.com. This is an election year, watch for nominations for President or Vice President, or consider running.

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.

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 to our Legal Defense Banquet. Please consider making a donation by contacting Top Lot Stretcher Company at (507)360-6935 for a commemorative patch.

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