The Nebraska Fur Harvesters has made a donation to the Montana Trappers Association to help combat Initiative 177. The $1,000 donation will be used by the MTA to help spread the word and promote the facts about trapping, and how initiative 177 is a special interest maneuver more so than a wildlife protection measure.
This affects us in Nebraska and every other state because if it passes, the anti trappers can (and assuredly will) use the Montana initiative as a precedent to expand their agenda into other states.
It is times like these, where your membership in one or more trapping associations provides the much needed funds to help sustain our way of life and proper wildlife management.
If you would like to make a personal donation to the Montana Trappers Association, you can do so by clicking this link. Any amount is helpful.
Take charge of your future and support the National Trappers Association (NTA), the Fur Takers of America (FTA), and the Nebraska Fur Harvesters Association. With membership in any of the three mentioned associations, you receive a free subscription to a top notch trapping magazine!
In case you are not familiar with me, my name is Mike Lance and I have been a NFH member since before 1984. When the Midwest Trapper (Precursor to the Trapper and Predator Caller) was first published by Mr. Chuck Spearman in the mid 70’s I had an article in the 3rd issue (pre dates me a little doesn’t it!). I’m the fellow who runs the Kids Trap Toss on Saturdays during the general meeting of the NFH annual Fall Convention. I try to keep the “natives” from getting too restless while you tend to the “business”. Which is why I am writing. If we continue to do this we need donated traps from members like you to award as prizes to the kids. I can’t begin to thank the folks who have donated all types of traps through years, but Dave Hastings, Jim Cronin, Joe Jack, Kris McAllister, Don Miller and several others went way above what I asked. Many times reaching into their own pockets and time slots to provide me with enough prizes and time to make the Trap Toss a success. I’m now asking you newer members to take their place by donating a trap or two so the NFH Fall Convention Trap Toss can continue….. #0’s, 1’s, 1.5’s, 2’s, LS or Coils, small body grip traps, gopher& mole traps, etc. are prizes given in the Toss and are currently needed. Typically we need from 50-60 individual traps/yr. in order that every boy and girl gets 1. Bring anything you have to the convention – new or “pre-owned” in useable condition and I’ll keep this portion of the Convention active as long as the members want. If you need to visit on this or about any other topic let me know with a call @ cell # 402-841-0380 or Pilger NE @396-3718. Thanks.
