Hello everyone,

I hope everyone has had a good summer and was able to stay as cool as possible. I am glad Fall is just around the corner; and everyone knows what that means, trap prep, scouting, talking with land owners and getting those permission slips renewed and last but not least our Fall Convention is just a few weeks away. Everyone is welcome, members and non members alike and I hope to see you there since we have a great Convention planned starting with the Demos, Supply Dealers and we can’t forget the great food the Lady Fur Harvesters always prepares fur us. This is always one of the best conventions I attend due to the fellowship of friends and members. It’s really hard to beat a local state convention. We also have a 20 gauge shot gun donated by Derek Delaney that we will be giving away after our association auction Saturday. Thanks Derek for your generosity.

Also, the Election for the Secretary, Treasurer, and Lady Fur Harvesters President is taking place this year and all positions are running un opposed. Laura Smith for the Treasurer, and Ashton Pittman- Secretary and Amanda Smith for Lady Fur Harvesters.

We have tentative dates set for the Fur Sales for the upcoming year. Crossville on March 2nd and Bulls Gap March 16th are the dates we tentatively set for this year at our meeting at Gee Creek. This should be plenty of time to let everyone get all their fur ready for the sale after season ends. Thanks for all the input and hopefully we are accommodating as many members as possible.

Thanks to everyone that helps make TFHA grow and expand, including Stan that is doing a great job with the web site. It takes hard work, dedication and great members to keep it going, and we, the Elected officials and Directors thank you all. If anyone has any questions don’t hesitate to call 731 614-2531 or send me an email at jlord2003@aol.com

Thanks. — James Lord
