Wayne, I did talk with James Taylor yesterday & told him I would definitely work the booth Sunday & possibly some afternoon or evening hours on Saturday just to let you know.

Sounds good.  I'll be leaving around 3:00 - 3:30 Saturday.

I got an email from Jason Hooks.  Eric Brinkman says he can help with the skinning and fur handling on Saturday or water sets for Beaver.  Can anyone else help on behalf of the ATA?

Thanks.

Wayne,

I wanted to take a moment to give you a little info about the upcoming trapping workshop. This workshop will be February 1-3 held at Rick Evans Grandview Prairie Education Center. This is setup for women only as a Beyond BOW (Becoming an Outdoors Woman) event. Trapping and fur handling classes have been very popular the last couple years at the big BOW event.

This is the first multi day trapping event i have organized. I have a very rough draft of how the weekend will go.

6:00pm - 7:00pm Dinner
7:00pm - 8:30 or 9:00 Intro to trapping, history, tools and equipment, benefits of trapping, regulations, etc.

I do not have instructors lined up yet. If you know of some ATA members that would like to help, you can give them my contact info, and i will get them lined out. We can and will make time for a representative to talk about promote the ATA. If you have any suggestions or concerns with the agenda or topics, just let me know.

Thanks

Well, a few more days and Iím headed south with Bob, for what my wife has dubbed my opposum trapping sabbatical. LOL
Itís been a long, long time since Iíve had traps out for more than a few days at a time. Even longer yet to camp that long.
Iíve got some new bait whipped up to try out.
A lot of time organizing all the stuff to haul down. Heck, I even cleaned my truck  Barf
Right now forecast looks like first 5 days of 60ís +\-. I hope itís not a wash the next week, Iíll be in a tent.
 I probably wonít have Net access while there, but I hope to post some of the shenanigans with pictures when I get back.
