SECRETARY AND NTA DIRECTOR’S REPORT
About the time you receive this report, there will be two or so weeks of this trapping season remaining. With any luck, most will still be trapping and getting their fur ready to market, hopefully, in Belen at our annual fur sale March 6 and 7. For additional information or help, call Mike Neal at 898-3499. David Heft is once again giving skinning and fur handling demos. Anyone that has seen his put up knows why he consistently wins the prize for best handled fur.
While you are thinking of fur, don’t forget you must report your catch to the Department of Game and Fish. For those of you who are on line the Mandatory Harvest reporting areas of the department’s Web page is a click away from the home page at http://www.wildlife.state.nm.us/. You can also use the toll free number, 888-248-6866 (888-2HUNTNM), to complete your report. Whichever method you choose, remember to have your Trapping License in hand.
We are once again raffling off a CZ Model 527 in Ruger 204. To purchase tickets, call any officer, visit our booth at the Bob Gerding Outdoor Expo, Feb. 13,14 and 15 at the Lujan Building on the Expo New Mexico Grounds in Albuquerque or buy them at the fur sale. The winner will be drawn on March 7 immediately before the bids on fur are delivered to the trappers. This is a fine gun and a worthwhile cause; please participate.
