I am sorry that the newsletter didn’t made the last issue but I sent it in on January 1, 2013 but I guess it got lost in the shuffle.

The Chandler fur sale will be over in a couple of days, we will post the results next time, but it looks like it should be a pretty good sale. Not much to report, so I will use last months report seeing how it missed again.

The next fur sale will be on March 2,2013 at Okemah at the fairgrounds.

Start getting people lined up for the upcoming election of officers and directors to be held at the fall meeting. We will need your nominations as soon as possible so ballots can be sent out in Sept. Also whoever you nominate are willing to take the position, you can nominate yourself if you want to. Turn your nominations into John Weygandt.

I hope all have a good season and continue to do so. Take a child or youth with you trapping they will love it and so will you.

God Bless All. — Gene Callaway
