There has been a change of location this year. We will now be hosting our 2021 State Trapping Convention at the Dawson County Fairgrounds in Lexington, Nebraska September 24th & 25th. Vendors, at this time, we ask that if you have questions, please contact Monte Arnold at 308-222-0227.
The Nebraska Fur Harvesters Association Spring Meeting will be held on Saturday April 17th, 2021 at 1:00pm in Albion, in the basement of the Cornerstone Bank.
There will be lots to discuss. All members in good standing are encouraged to come and share your opinions and vote.
The Cornerstone Bank is located at 240 S 3rd St in Albion.
See you there!
Due to the state of the Covid-19, out break of new cases in Lincoln County and the restrictions placed on us by the local health department we have decided to cancel the 2020 convention in North Platte.
It was not an easy decision and it was not taken lightly.
Plans are to have it in North Platte next September 24th and 25th.
Thank you for your understanding.
At the spring meeting held August 2 in Albion, it was decided that the convention should still be held in North Platte. This decision was unanimously voted on by the attending members at the meeting. The convention is still contingent upon the approval of our event plan by the West Central District Health Department.
Please keep checking the facebook page and website for the most current information on the convention. Also, keep in mind, as these crazy times seem to change day-by-day, current events of the day could cause the convention to be cancelled up to the day of.
The NFH Spring Banquet has been cancelled. We are still planning on having the spring meeting at a different place and date. Please check back here for further details on the location of the spring meeting.
In the interest of saving valuable time at our Fall meeting, I am posting my NTA report here as opposed to delivering it at the meeting. I will have copies available.

A great way to get involved and help our cause is to serve on a committee. The Nebraska Fur Harvesters Association is going to put together some committees to help get more things done faster and we need your help!
Being a committee member isn’t hard. All you have to do is be a current member and have a desire to help make us a better organization.
At the fall meeting (Bassett, NE) this year we are going to assemble some committees to break down tasks to get done instead of trying to cover all of our activities in 2 one hour meetings a year.
Committees will meet whenever and wherever needed. Most committee business can be accomplished over the phone or email, conference calls or group emails.
If you are interested please let us know. We need your help and we need more voices!
The following committees will be assembled at the Fall meeting. The chairpersons will be chosen by the board of directors.
EDUCATION – scheduling trapper ed classes, facilities, personnel, resources, food
CONVENTION – vendors, facility, demos, table layout, etc
BANQUET – Spring banquet, location, food, speaker, activities, donations
MEMBERSHIP – adding new members, putting together membership material, sending out membership cards, ordering membership cards (for example, Donna could chair this committee, and the members could assist her)
BYLAWS – Keeping the bylaws current. Proposing changes
COMMUNICATIONS – website, facebook, youtube, communications with our members on anything of importance, including writing our column in the Trappers Post.
AWARDS – Nebraska trappers hall of fame, any other awards, ordering plaques, trophies, etc.
SCHOLARSHIP – promoting and reviewing and awarding the NFH scholarships
The Nebraska Fur Harvesters Association has always had districts, but as of the last 10 years, they have not been active. We are looking for members to serve as directors in the district that you live in.
To be a district director isn’t a difficult task. What it means, is you are the contact point in your area for the Nebraska Fur Harvesters. If there are any activities in your area, you can represent the NFH. You also promote membership in your district.
If you are interested, and are a member with current dues, please see a Nebraska Fur Harvesters officer, or anyone at the front table during the upcoming convention, or message us on our facebook page.
