Spring 2019 Report

Greetings To All:
The fall and winter trapping season is in full swing and the trappers that I have talked with seem to be doing well.  There seems to be a lot of fur out there to trap and with not too much competition.

I personally have not had much time to trap although I will be headed north for the cat opener this Friday.  Our house incurred hail and wind damage this spring - a new roof for the house and two out buildings.  They had our three roofs done in one day – tear off and back on.  The siding is now getting done as I write this.

Kathy and I wanted a farm table for our growing family, especially for the holidays.  I made it out of wood that I harvested, using oak and walnut.  This has been a lengthy project time wise, as I built this in my shop which is also my skinning shed.  The process took longer than expected as we had to take it out and store it for a while during last year’s deer hunting and trapping seasons.  The project is nearly completed and the table is now in the house to get acclimated to the indoors.  Kathy will do the poly on it while I am gone up north and I will put the legs on when I get back.

Wiebke’s Trading Company put on a Trappers Education Program October 13th and approximately 30 students and several adults attended. I would like to thank Jason Wiebke for doing this. I spoke with Jason before they held the class, and he said that he went to area schools and informed them that they were putting together a Trapper Education Day.  John Petersen was the lead instructor and I want to thank John for taking time to help with this program. We need more people like this to step forward and help with Trapper Education.  When I was talking with Jason Wiebke, it is his intent to put a class together every year going forward.  I will have Jason get those dates to me and have them posted on the web and future newsletters.

District 8 Spring Meeting will be held at a new location – Saturday, March 16th.
Stewartsville Sportsman Club
1735 County 6 Road SW
Stewartville, MN  55976
Doors open at 8:00 am and the meeting will start at 10:00 am.  
It will be a potluck again, so please bring a dish to pass.

Also a reminder that Bill Ruhland will be stepping down and we will be in need of a co-director.  Please consider stepping up and filling this position.  If you do have an interest, please contact me.
Have a safe trapping season.
