The New Hampshire Trappers Association will hold its annual two-day fall meeting September 15 and 16, 2012 this year at the Owl Brook Hunter/Trapper Education Center in Holderness, NH. This publication may be delivered to you just prior or after the event. Either way we hope you were able to attend and enjoyed the demos and got lucky with the gun raffle.
The Assoc. held a monthly directors meeting August 7, 2012. President Larry Torr has asked, on behalf of the association, for a donation of a nice winter fox to replace our sad red fox mount. Director Brian Denutte organized the trailer of mounts and reported that the red fox is on its last leg. There are other mounts that are in failing condition, we will try to replace one a year until we are caught up.
The association received three thank-you letters: the NTA received our donation of $500, FTA our donation of $500 and the US Sportsmens Alliance our donation of $1,000. Each year NHTA tries to support groups that have similar goals as our own.
The Frank Sinclair grant committee met during our August meeting coffee break to discuss our dilemma of having two college students who applied for the $500 annual scholarship and neither of who meet all the criteria. We typically give out only one scholarship per year to a student with a B average who is enrolled in a wildlife related field, but gave out two last year as we had two deserving applicants following a several year span of not having any applicants. The committee suggested and the directors voted to award both applicants this year as a one-time offering and to consider changing the grant in the future to include an award for a B student that is related to an active director, regardless of the field of study.
The next two events the association will be planning are the winter fur auction and the banquet. We are in need of high energy volunteers to assist with this years banquet. We look forward to hearing from you!
Best to all. — Paul DeBow, Grafton County Director
