I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and I hope that your New Year will be happy.
We have about 18 inches of snow on the ground and you ask, how do I know? I was out snowshoeing and I found out how far out of shape I am. It sure is amazing how heavy those shoes get after a short while.
It sounds like we may get a wolf season some time in the near future. It could be as early as 2013. It also sounds as if the new Natural Resources Commission Chairman is very supportive of the season. By the time you read this it may already be signed by the Governor and be on its way to the Commission for setting the regulations for a season.
The Chairman of the Natural Resource Commission is asking for changes in our use of cable restraints. He wants to look at the Wisconsin regulations.
I would like to mention that Bob Nelson has gone onto the Great Beyond to be with all of the other great trappers who preceded him. We’re very grateful for the donations we have received from his family and friends in Bob’s memory.
I have not as yet heard of any fur prices from buyers or auctions.
This is a reminder of our annual Trapper’s Dinner that will be on February 23rd. The cost will be $12 each for a trapper and 1 guest. Additional guests will be $15 each. There will be a social hour from 6pm to 7pm and dinner will be at 7pm. If you want anything to drink that is stronger than coffee or pop you will have to bring it with you.
I hope everyone has had a good season so far. — Jim Neitling
