Greetings Fellow trappers,

As you read this our season will be under way and I hope you are all doing well on the line. We will again have a pick up for our fur going to NAFA this year around the end of March, I let you all know the details as soon as I can. If you were unable to come to the convention this year, we missed you. We had a good crowd and a great time. Miss SC Ali Rogers was there to thank everyone and show the beautiful beaver fur that we gave her. Lets all be pulling for her to win Miss America in January. It’s all quiet on the legislative scene at the moment, but we will certainly be monitoring the bills that are introduced and be on the lookout for any that effect us. I hope you all will be enjoying the new changes in the regulations that the SCTA was able to get last session and they will help you to trap more. I haven’t heard from Scott about his time out west but I’m hoping he is loading up on those high dollar cats. Do yourself a favor this year and take a young one with you on your line or anybody that has never experienced a trapline before and get them introduced to the sport we love, they’ll thank you for it and it will help keep this tradition alive

Good trapping. — Ricky

  1. I live in North end of Anderson County. Where might I find someone who would accept ‘green’ skins from coyotes and/or beavers?

    I don’t presently have any, but would like the info as I, and others, do occasionally have some available and don’t want to waste the hides.
