A huge THANK YOU to every trapper and state affiliate that has sent contributions to help fund the battle to defeat I-177. It’s extremely gratifying to see the long list of state affiliates that have stepped up to help our fellow trappers in Montana.

With election day less than a month away we are trying to get this across the finish line. The first commercial began airing yesterday. At this time, we need to raise another $150,000 to purchase more air time and develop a second commercial. We are asking every affiliate to consider giving all you can towards this effort. If we wake up on Wednesday Nov 9th to a defeat in Montana, it will only serve to energize and encourage the anti-trapping groups to target more states. If they can win in Montana they can win anywhere.

Any groups or individuals wishing to help can do so quickly and easily using the “Donate to Montana” tab on our homepage at

While a lot of the effort is understandably being directed towards Montana, they certainly aren’t the only trappers fighting to protect their lifestyle. There is a hand full of trappers in California trying desperately to save their ability to trap bobcats. They have an excellent attorney and reason for hope. Like all the fights, this one requires funding. Any state that would like to help can send donations directly to Mercer Lawing, P.O.Box 1966, Barstow, CA. 92311 The CTA will greatly appreciate any help that can be given.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me at 605-830-1009
