The Spring meeting was held in Sumner, Nebraska on April 10th, 2016. Topics discussed included furthering the education program, getting volunteers to help at the convention and to help with education classes, etc. The possibility of holding a State Association Fur Auction was tossed around. If you have interest or opinions on this contact Eric Stane.
Bob Miers was introduced as the new Secretary for the Nebraska Fur Harvesters Association. Thanks, Bob and we are glad to have that position filled after being vacant for so long.
Some discussion was had about where to hold the 2017 convention.
Sam Wilson, Furbearer Program Manager for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission gave his report on some regulation terminology changes, Otter numbers, and Furbearer Harvest numbers. Thanks Sam for making the trip out and providing the valuable information.
If anyone would like to volunteer to help at the convention, education programs, or anything else with the Nebraska Fur Harvesters, please contact our President Eric Stane. We are always looking for volunteers.
A big thanks to all who attended for making the trip. Thanks to those that donated lure, bait, tools and hats to be drawn out and given away as door prizes. There were a few items left over and those will go in Eric’s youth education box to be given out at the future youth education seminars. Also a huge Thank You to Monte for hosting and providing lunch!
Have a good summer and see you all at the convention!!!
