ATTENTION ALL DISTRICT DIRECTORS

Please have a district meeting 30 days prior to the BOD Meeting on Sept. 13 at the Fall Convention.

The ATA really needs the Directors to come to the BOD meetings. Several directors have missed a few BOD meetings and we need your input as to what is going on in your district.

Good thoughts, Travis, regarding the trappers being a positive factor in maintaining the integrity of the levees by our trapping activities.  It would be a definite positive for all trappers in the state should someone in a position of authority such as the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, or someone in the state administrative offices, to make a public statement to this effect. 
I also share your thoughts about the animal population after large rains and floods.  I noticed a decline in the animal populations up here after the large spring rains that we had 3 years ago.  It was like they all moved away, but I suspect that the spring births of many were washed away and became catfish bait.  We didn't have that much rain up here, at least not of the flooding kind this year.

Much of the Arkansas river basin has seen a massive amount of water this spring. I am eager to get on the river to find the new cuts and backwashes. Although sad because I know, like spring and fall 2015 floods reek havoc on what little marsh habitat we have. Heavy washes of sand filling in spots of cattail, suppresses their growth for a few seasons. Debris piles can be a nice new find for mink,coon, and otter and even the occasional new beaver hooch. I am curious though what the flooding does in the way of young of the year  beaver. I know some are bound to be lost. What’s your opinion on population densities after floods reside? New genetics wash down? Will a beaver have another litter after an early spring litter. I noticed a lot of small rats the 15/16 season I suspect late litters after the flood, but the food left and so did the rats for a bit. Then a year or 2 of unstable water etc etc etc.

Also on a side note,  all the media coverage the flood has got, is this levee going to hold is that, the price of beefs going to go up, my wheat is wet. How bout Thank you Trappers! Surely unbeknownst to the public, how much levee damage would have been sustained from hog rooting, beaver and rat tunneling had there not been Trappers in the midst. Water rushing through bank dens and areas void of vegetation due to over abundance of hogs or beaver, makes quick work of the integrity of a bank or levee. You have saved the day again! And no one even knows.......
