The Montana Trap-Free Public Lands Initiative, I-177, has qualified for the November 8, 2016 ballot.
I-177 generally prohibits the use of traps and snares for animals on any public lands within Montana and establishes misdemeanor criminal penalties for violations of the trapping prohibitions. I-177 if passed by the electorate, will become effective immediately.
Final preparations are being made for the National Convention in Kalamazoo MI. You will notice a change to the BOD schedule. There will be an orientation for all new state directors. This will be held Tuesday morning before the start of the board meeting from 8:00 am to 9:00am. If your association is sending a new director, please ask that they attend this meeting. Any veteran directors that wish to attend are welcome also.
I hope to see you all in MI. Don’t hesitate to bend my ear about any issues or questions you might have. If you are unable to catch me wandering the grounds, I will be at the NTA booth from noon – 2:00 pm every day.
