PRESIDENT’S REPORT

Hello everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year! I want to first start off by introducing myself. My name is Michael Perkins, and I am the new President of the NWOFT.

As many of you know, we recently had our fur auction at the Tontogany American Legion. I want to thank everyone who helped out with the sale and all of the trappers and buyers who allowed us to have another successful sale. Although the overall number of lots was slightly less than last year, we still had some new faces at the auction, and even some young first time trappers. It’s always nice to see young people getting involved in trapping and eager to learn new things.

Below is a brief summary of the auction. I hope everyone was pleased overall with the way the sale went, and I ask you to please contact me with any questions, comments, or suggestions regarding the auction or the NWOFT. I wish you all the best the remainder of the season and hope you can introduce trapping to someone new! Until next time… Take Care, God Bless and Happy Trapping!

— Michael R. Perkins
