I got this from Blake today: "The Wildlife Management Division Regulations committee met yesterday and discussed the three proposals that the ATA and SWAFT recently sent to me.  They decided to include the proposal to allow the use of cleaned bones at trap sites without having to cover them from above in the proposals that we will make to the Commission this spring and Iím working on the code language now.    They declined to move forward with the 660 and use of acetone to kill skunks proposals."

I told him it was actually EAFT...not SWAFT.

Presented a proposal this afternoon.  Eric did a great job of helping and we got a letter of support from the EAFT.

Kudos to you guys!

I will get in touch with Kentucky I helped them get their snare laws years ago, as a matter of fact I gave them ours.
so if you go to Kentucky snaring and notice their laws look formilliar you will know why.
I will see if they have changed the dispatch rule yet

The use of the 660 conibear
The use of dispatch via syringe pole for skunks

We also talked about 36 hour checks, which was voted to not pursue due to the current regulations stating daily check
Also talked about the use of 2 piece locks on land

And some talk about the possiblities regaurding getting a better bobcat gene pool into Arkansas

Seems like there may have been something else but I forget without looking back on my notes.

That just about covers it with the addition if being allowed to use viscera free bones as an attractor at the trap set.
Eric is gathering info on this so I can submit it to Blake by the 20th of September.

I have two wildlife biologist sending me data on Acetone use with syringe poles Monday.  They are located in Oklahoma, which can use the syringe poles.  R.C. Edger, president of the Oklahoma Furbears Alliance, is helping us gather information.

In regards to the 660, it should be treated like a 330.  That's really all it is...a modified 330.

We as a Board voted to pursue the 660 issue, Acetone dispatch, and viscera free bones as an attractor.

Hopefully, we can get some things implemented to help trappers use all available resources from the animals.

If anyone has any data we could use, please email to me no later than lunch Tuesday at president@arkansastrappers.org.

Thanks.

I am thankful for the member who showed up to the BOD meeting with some concerns for trapping and got the ball rolling on some things also.
I have only been a member for a short time, but this seems to me the first proactive move I have seen the ATA make towards our regulations in that short period... Im looking forward to the process.

Yes, sir.  That is exactly what I want.  Members ideas and thoughts.

BTW, Blake asked me today if we had anything he needs to look at and I submitted to him Eric's items that the Board voted to pursue.
