The ATA will be hosting the NTA SE Regional May 8th and 9th of May 2020 at Garland County Fairgrounds in Hot Springs.

We will need "all hands on deck" starting May 5th through the 10th to set up the demo area, get vendor tables set up, work the gate, work the Ball Toss, organize and collect the fees for campers and clean up after the convention.

Contact me at if you can help and the days you can help. There are a limited number of complimentary admission wristbands. These will be for workers only. Thanks

The AGFC passed new regulations today on hunting & trapping certain fur bearers on Private Land year round . They will have special license or permit that will be available I believe they said in August & available online. You can view the meeting today on YouTube.

I would be interested,just have to give me an idea about what that would involve since I have never been to one. Had planned on going to event in Springfield this past week but had to stay in town for a memorial service for life long friend. Anybody willing to post a summary of how the event went & comments on any particular bargains on trapping equipment or trapping educational discussions or new tid bits to try a specific sets ? Also any guesstimate on attendance.

The convention went great.  Plenty of vendors and the demos were top notch.  Mike Fischer's demo was great...right up to when the trap caught his thumb and he cussed.  LOL!  The ATA sold a few shirts and signed up several new members.  Traffic got slow late Saturday so a lot of vendors packed up and left.  Can't really blame them as some had 12 - 14 hours, or more, drive to get back home. 

It's always good to see old friends and meet new ones.  There were a lot of kids there so that made the whole thing worth it.

And I want to thank the Arkansas group for showing up.  It was good to see Arkansas represented so well.  Thank you.

Do you reckon changing their name, and their status, will cause them to change their destructive habits regarding farm animals.  We will just have to wait to find out.

 Interesting that today I found an old article in the Sept/Oct  2017 issue of Trapper’s Post ,where they discuss how the anti trapping/hunting community mentioned in Clint’s YouTube above, are trying to label the Eastern Coyote as a distinct species of wolf they call the Coywolf & could qualify for protection under the Endangered Species Act.  You never know what clever way the “anti group” will try and attack your recreation/livelihood life style.

About 4 hours ago , Clint Locklear posted on his YouTube  “Wolfernation” about filling out a very easy message to Pres Trump, the secretary of the interior, & our congressional leader that will affect us trappers in the future. Please view this video & go to the website   ,   & complete the message as directed. It takes about 3 min  & Clint’s video is about 10 min.  If you cherish your trapping, use this as a message to our law makers.

Animal matter may not be used as bait within 20 feet of a trap unless it is covered.
Bait must be covered in such a way as to withstand wave action, wind action and other normal environmental conditions that could cause it to become visible.

I take this to mean no animal matter.  A bone would be animal matter.

Since I posted this, the regs have changed and you can now use bleached (viscera free) bone that doesn't have to be covered from above sight.
