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.

In a textbook example of management by science – not emotion, The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission approved removing river otters from the threatened and endangered species list in the state.
It was determined that the population of otters in the state would support being removed from the threatened and endangered species list. Nebraska trappers are still hopeful that someday there will be a season on otters in some form, and this action paves the way to that goal.
You can read the full article on the Lincoln Journal Star Website here.

We are proud to announce the induction of two of our long time members and friends to the Nebraska Trappers Hall of Fame.
Congratulations Don Miller and Jim Cronin to the NFH Hall of Fame. Both of these guys are stand up guys and friends of trapping. They have both put in many years of service to Nebraska trappers and to the Nebraska Fur Harvesters Association.
Don’t pass up an opportunity to talk trapping with either of these guys. Neither one will pass up an opportunity to talk about their trapping adventures with you. Their experience is immeasurable.
Thank you for your service to us trappers.
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.
