The Importance of Trapping Associations

If any trapper ever questioned the value of trapping associations, there are two examples from just the past few days that help illustrate how important they are.

The Montana Furbearer Conservation Alliance is involved in a fight for the right to trap wolverines in Montana. Alliance spokesman Don Bothwell spoke to the Associated Press for a story on the debate and the lawsuit that Defenders of Wildlife filed.

Also, Jim Greeley, the president of the Mid-Hudson Valley Fur Harvesters Association, was quoted throughout a story on the basics of trapping in the Bennington Banner.

Without groups like the Montana Furbearer Conservation Alliance fighting for a voice on trapping-related matters and organizations like the Mid-Hudson Valley Fur Harvesters Association helping to educate the public on trapping, things might be a lot different for us.

So, make sure you join your local association and help out in any way you can.
