The WVTA held their annual Convention in September at the Gilmer County Recreation Center in Glenville, WV. It was one of the largest conventions held. There were many demos during the weekend and several vendors to sell trapping supplies. Trappers Education classes informed the students of how to set traps and snares properly, regulations, and wildlife diseases to name some of the things taught. A big Thank You to all the instructors, volunteers who prepared the students lunch, and all the donors who made the Trappers Education Classes a big success. Also, thanks to all who gave donations for the auction.

There were many winners of the Top Lot Awards for all those hours of volunteer work greatly appreciated by our President, Janet.

Scott Schimmel received the WVTA Hall of Fame Award this year.

Fur Prices are expected to be about the same.

Hope each of you have a safe hunting and trapping season and we will look forward to seeing you at the January Fur Auction. — Glenda Schimmel, Media Committee Chairman
