SECRETARY’S REPORT

Greetings fellow trappers,

I hope you all had a fantastic summer. I hope you’re all getting your trapping stuff ready for the up coming season. I also hope you plan on attending some conventions. You got 3. I will be at selling supplies at and hopes too see you there!

-NEIL OLSONS TRAPPERS WEEKEND AUGUST 23/24/25 IN BETHEL MAINE.

I went last year and had a blast!

– THEN YOU HAVE HERKIMER COUNTY TRAPPERS CONVENTION AUGUST 30 THRU SEPT 1ST AT THE HERKIMER COUNTY FAIR GROUNDS

– THEN WE HAVE OUR YEARLY CTA CONVENTION OCT 6TH IN CHAPLIN CT. HOPE TO SEE A LOT OF CT TRAPPERS THERE!

Surely you will find all your trapping needs for the season at one or more of theses shows.

CT trappers who are bowhunters, it is time to start getting ready for bow hunting. Tune that bow AND START TO PRACTICE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. MAKE THOSE SHOTS COUNT. Season opens Sept. 15th.

How about you NWCOS out there. Hope you all had a profitable & safe season so far. It has been a strange year for me in many ways….lots of skunks and wood chucks…not so many coons. We sure are lucky to have the best NWCO supplier company in CT…..Wildlife Control Supplies right her in CT. We can pop in and pick up orders. ALAN & CAROL ARE SOME OF NICEST PEOPLE YOU’LL EVER MEET IN the industry A great staff that knows their stuff and is also very kind…trust me if WCS doesn’t have it…well you don’t need it! They have it all for the NWCO world.

Back to fur trapping, I know the fun may leave when the fur handling comes into play (can for me anyways) but I always try to do the best I can putting up fur and so should you. You go thru all the trouble of making sets and catching it then not try to get top dollar for it. Anybody targeting any thing special this year? As for me not sure if I will. I guess just to be out their trapping all legal critters will be fine for me.

I also id like to give a fast apology to some CT trappers who go their cards or pins on the slow end. IT’S MY BAD NO ONE ELSES AS THE NEW CTA SECRETARY I’M A BIT SLOW…LITTLE BIT HARDER THAN I THOUGHT…TIME WISE….DOING A FULL TIME NWCO CO AND A LANDSCAPING CO ..I’M IN THE CRUNCH SEASON ….I’M WORKING ON GETTING IT DOWN PAT BEING THE CTA SECRETARY THOUGH…..K WELL I GOTTA RUN for now….
