Normally, February is a slow month but not February 2019. With multiple states being under some form of attack of their trapping rights, writing two magazine reports, planning two three-day trapper training camps, a Tennessee FBU banquet and working with Vickie on convention stuff it's been a little busy.
I'm glad to report the Arizona Trappers Association will be hosting the NTA Western Regional Convention June 7-8.
If you’re a vendor or have a talent for giving demos we need you there.
If you have been following the happenings in New Mexico, Montana and other Western states, then you know the West is up against it. These regionals are a good way to show strength through unity as well as an infusion of cash to help them with the cause, so try to make it to this one if you can.
We are still in need of nominations for the various awards. Look for a list of the awards in next month's BOD report.
If your state doesn't have a plan of action in case your trapping rights come under attack, I advise you to devise one as well as a backup plan. Many times these actions move quickly and if you want to have a chance to defeat them you have to be ready. Be vigilant, be alert, be ready.
With furs sales and conventions upon us, I hope your checks are large and your travels are safe.
