Summer 2020 Report


Hello Everyone!

Due to concerns surrounding COVID19, our summer convention scheduled for July30th - August 1st in Barnum has been canceled. Plans are underway to have next year’s convention remain in Barnum.

Not being able to sell our raffle tickets at local fairs, parades, sporting shows, bars etc. is having a negative impact on our raffle ticket sales.  We need everyone to do their part and sell, sell, sell tickets when and wherever you can.  If you need more tickets please contact Tom Boser.
In lieu of the convention being cancelled, the Awards Committee decided to cancel this year’s awards.  We would like to encourage all of you to continue to submit worthy recipients for the following awards that will be awarded at next year’s convention in 2021.  Deadline for submission is July 1, 2021.

• MTA Hall of Fame
• MTA Junior Trapper
• MTA Female
• MTA Male Trapper

You must submit your nomination no later than July 1, 2021 to Tyler Thompson.  Nomination forms can be found on our website.

Our website and magazine editors are always looking for trapping related photos.  If you have some photos you would like to be considered, please send them to Cat Hanson via email at mntrapeditor@gmail.com  and Carol Thaemert at mntrapweb@gmail.com

This is our fourth year for the Sustaining Donor Program.  The proceeds this year will go towards promotions and marketing of the MTA and trapping in general. Please consider making a donation by contacting Top Lot Stretcher Company at (507)360-6935 for a commemorative patch.
