Great news!! We don’t have any earth shattering issues on the table right now. However, we do have some busy activities and public relations work coming up. As many of you are aware we have booths at various gun shows throughout the area and perhaps our busiest booth is at the Black Hills Stock Show. We always appreciate all the volunteers we can get in manning these booths.

If you live in the region of any of these events and would like to help in visiting with the public about trapping, answering questions about furbearers, and selling furs please let me or the provided contact know you would like to help. The upcoming dates for these events are listed as follows: Brookings Gun Show Jan 15th -16th (Aaron Doyscher), Black Hills Stock Show Jan 27th -Feb 5th (Anna Hermanson), Sioux Falls Gun Show Feb 12th-13th, Pierre Gun Show Feb 19th -20th (Ray Maize), Watertown Gun Show March 19th-20th(John Almquist), Rapid City Gun Show April 9th-10th (Anna Hermanson).

I want to make sure you all know about our upcoming conventions. Our spring convention is scheduled for Saturday April 16th near Britton, SD. Our next Fall Rendezvous is scheduled for September 16 & 17 in Wall, SD. I hope this gives you plenty of time to mark your calendars, and I look forward to seeing you all again soon. If you ever need anything or have any concerns, please feel free to contact me at any time. I hope that you’re all staying warm and the snow isn’t too much of a bother. After all this is South Dakota and the weather will change eventually…
