Colorado Trappers Association Membership Meeting

Lincoln County Fairgrounds Building, Hugo, CO

Check in your furs for auction and attend the meeting!

The fur auction will be held February 13-14, same place.

Welcome to Chris and Mary Roughen of Castle Rock, and to three new members recruited by Allen Chubbuck: Josh Harding, Buena Vista; Brenda Howe, Carbondale; and Dean Howe, Genoa.

Also, we send condolences to the family of John and Doris Peterman. John passed away on December 21 at the age of 93. He had been a trapper for 80 plus years, and had received the CTA’s coveted Trapper of the Year award in 2002. Doris had been John’s better half for 68 years, and passed away December 31 of a broken heart. Cards may be sent to daughter Penny Hardrick, 652 Aldrea Vista Court, Palisade, CO 81526. — Cheryl Oleyar



I hope everyone has had a productive fur season. The CTA fur auction is fast approaching, in fact by the time this is printed, the auction will be very close. The auction days are Feb 13 & 14 2013 and the furs all have to be received by Feb 9 & 10 2013. Look for our ad in the trapper for more information. If there are any questions please contact one of our agents, Bill Curns (719)749-2151, Todd Fairchild (970)210-0507 or myself at (719)743-2552. Hope to see everyone at the auction. — Greg Ashmore
