Hello again trappers. First, I would like to think all those who voted for me.

It is two days before Christmas as I write this and again it is rainning. The water seems to raise when I want to trap a creek or river, but that is life as a trapper. Last week, I caught a huge otter in a beaver set and turned it over to IDNR as we have tried hard to get a season on otter and bobcats I see them more and more. As fur prices fall, so do the number of people trapping. That is the difference between trappers and people who trap. And as I write this, I am reminded of those thousands of troops going to battle and some of those are trappers and they will put their seasons on hold for us. Let us never forget their sacrifices of their families and things they will miss while away. And some will not come back. So remember to pray daily for them.

— Carroll Williams
