PRESIDENT’S REPORT

If you missed the June 22 and 23 Rendezvous, you missed a good one. Well organized, good food and quality demos. Good selection of trapping supplies also. Thank you Pat, Hance, Michelle and others for your donations.

There are two major issues in Idaho that Trappers need to participate in. First is the Wildlife Summit scheduled for Aug. 24 to 26 at the Riverside Hotel in Boise and six concurrent satellite sites — Coeur d’ Alene, Lewiston, Twin Falls, Pocatello and Idaho Falls.

The purpose of this summit is to let all residents in Idaho help set the direction of Wildlife Mgt. in Idaho. This meeting is not just for hunters and trappers. With the new anti-trapping groups forming in Idaho, you can bet they will be there. You should be too.

Second is the November ballot issue for a proposed constitutional amendment (HJR2) that says in part, “… the rights to hunt, fish and trap, including the use of traditional methods, are a valued part of the heritage of the state of Idaho and shall be preserved for the people…”

Here’s our chance, guys. This will give us a major leg up on the anti’s. You must vote and tell your friends to vote for this amendment. If it fails in November, it will be because of the word trap. We won’t get another chance.

How about that Longspring Gazette! Thank you, Andy White. If you are a member of the Idaho Trappers Association, you will be getting the ITA’s new newspaper/newsletter. — Bruce, SE Director
