Hello, fellow NC trappers, I hope this report finds you doing well. By the time you read this,The Dixie Deer Classic (March 1st,2nd and 3rd) will be at hand and I hope to see you there. Trapping season is winding down and I hope your season has been as exciting and enjoyable as mine. Work has gotten in the way lately but I can’t complain.

I again want to remind you about our advanced trapping course,May 17-19,2013 at Millstone 4-H camp in Ellerbee, NC. You can find all of the details at the NCWRC website. This course can put you years ahead in your learning curve so please take advantage of it.

With the season winding down, I know that we are all watching the fur market reports with much interest. The rising markets of the last few years are bringing more people into our sport. I have had quite a few calls from folks just starting to trap or in some cases,restarting after years away from it. This is a great chance for us to recruit more members into our ranks. We will need these people to be educated on responsible trapping techniques and made aware of the need to stand up and protect our right to trap. Recent attacks on our 2nd amendment rights show all too easily how fast things can snowball under certain circumstances. We need to be ever vigilant to keep the right to enjoy all of our outdoor pursuits.

That’s about all I have for now. Please take a kid along with you in all of your outdoor adventures. They are the ones who will carry on our heritage after we are gone. You will be surprised how much satisfaction you will get from introducing a youngster to the outdoors. — Tony W. White
