The spring meeting of the Nebraska Fur Harvesters was held on April 21st, 2018 at the Seward VFW in Seward Nebraska.
President Eric Stane discussed the trailer situation and explained to the members present what had been done about the trailers. For those that do not know, the NFH owned a trailer that we use to haul tables, chairs, cooking equipment, PA systems, etc to conventions
and wherever needed. This trailer incurred some hail damage. We were paid an insurance claim. We ended up buying a couple new trailers, a larger one and a smaller one.
Dave Hastings gave the FTA report and Mark Hajny gave the NTA report. Both of these reports pertain to current goings-on in the respective national trapping organizations. Including issues around the country pertaining to fur harvesting.
The upcoming fall convention in West Point was discussed. It was agreed that we would charge a gate fee to get in. This will help cover costs of renting the facility, etc. Table allocation and arrangements were briefly discussed.
The fairness of reciprocity between Nebraska and neighboring states was discussed. Also discussed was whether or not it was fair to charge non-resident children the full price of a non-red. license when accompanied by an adult. Letters have been drafted for both issues and will be presented to the Nebraska game and parks officials for possible change.
Business meetings of the Nebraska Fur Harvesters are open to all current members in good standing, and you are encouraged to come find out what is going on and have your opinion heard. We always welcome members, new and old to the meetings.
