JUST A REMINDER: Alabama Regulation 220-2-.32 requires that each trapper report their harvest by number and species to the Alabama DCNR within 45 days after the end of the season. You can obtain a copy of the form at www.outdooralabama.com. The data collected from these reports is vital information needed to monitor the fur bearing population in Alabama. Send your completed form to the address indicated on the form.
In closing, I would like to inform the membership that I have been nominated for the position of General Organizer an elected office of the National Trappers Association. The position of President and General Organizer are up for election this year. Since both positions are a contested (two nominees for each position), current NTA members in good standing (dues paid) will receive a ballot via US Mail. I ask for your support. Please follow the instructions printed on your ballot to return your completed ballot. — Charlie Rath
