PRESIDENT’S REPORT

Welcome to the best time of the year! Some things to keep in mind as the trapping seasons approach –

• Remember to have your written permission and have it with you;

• Keep your sets away from domestic animal or human contact;

• Save time by marking your trails, runs, and set locations while out hunting or scouting;

• Run your line in both directions – you’d be surprised at what you miss when working from only one direction;

• Check and re-check your traps and equipment so it’s serviceable and in top condition;

• Animal welfare deserves the highest priority – use the appropriate equipment and be timely with your trap checks;

• Work with your wildlife and fisheries managers, conservation wardens, and report violations.

The gage of a professional trapper is not who traps the most or who has been trapping the longest. A professional trapper is a trapper who obeys the laws, shares their knowledge, continues to improve themselves through education, and serves to promote the activity by being responsible and ethical. Lets all be professional – our future depends on it!

Until next time, enjoy and be thankful for all that God provides! Catch ‘ya.

— Rick Tischaefer
