a word from our President, Bob Driscoll

  FTA members and interested parties,  

As the new President of the Florida Trappers Association I look forward to working with all FTA members to accomplish the Mission and Goals of the FTA. Please take a minute to review the Mission and Goals on the FTA website. We have to do a lot of work to meet these Goals. The new officer team plans to provide an agenda to help us meet these objectives. Over the next few months we will be presenting ideas and projects. We look forward to hearing from FTA members on these ideas, plus hearing any suggestion on projects or events we should consider. Please review the events we currently have scheduled for 2020 found under Events.  Questions and suggestions about events are always welcome. Please contact any FTA officer. We will be adding District Directors and assistant Directors as soon as we get commitments. Hopefully by end of next week. We want all FTA members involved with developing a relevant association, protecting our heritage, preserving our lands and wild-life.  Lets have fun with the FTA fellowship. Working together to protect our rights to Hunt, Fish, Trap and enjoy the great outdoors.
