Just a little note to let you guys know that we are still around. Not much going on lately. From what I have heard about the auctions is that they are as unpredictable as the weather. I have said this many times before that you will know what the prices are when you get your check. I know from what I have seen of some of the done up fur that a $20 dollar hide can become worthless if not done up correctly.
If you do not know how to do up your fur, there are plenty of experienced trappers out there that will be more than happy to show you the right way to do up your fur.
Mark Spencer, Ken Mills and Lloyd White did an interview for the local paper, St. Ignace News, on trapping. The article was well done and these guys did a lot for the sport of trapping by saying the right things at the right time. Well done guys.
The Association jackets are in and if you want to purchase one you can contact Mark Spencer “the younger.”
The next meeting is March 16th at 7:30pm at the Lutheran Church in Rudyard.
By the time you read this, we will have had our annual trapper’s dinner and like usual it will be a success.
The end of another season is rapidly approaching. I hope everyone was successful and had fun pursuing those wily critters. I know I did not catch that many but I sure had fun trying to out fox those critters. No pun intended.
With the end of the season coming maybe some of you will get out there and freeze yourselves to the ice trying to catch some of those underwater critters.
