CONGRATULATIONS! CONGRATULATIONS!

CONGRATULATIONS!

Congratulations: Robert Cox Jr was the winner of the "A/R drawing"
Congratulations: Trey Mathews was the winner of the "Predator Pack" give away at Fur College




-On behalf of the Florida Trappers Association we would like to thank everyone who participated in the FTA Fur Collage and in the fund raising drawings. Without these folks helping out we wouldn't be where we are today!
-Updates will be coming in the future on trapping policy modifications in the state. Now more than ever we need to bond together to protect our heritage. Trapping in many states is already under attack and our state is no different, we need to support our fellow trappers and organizations in other states as they do us. Do not think anything happening in other states don't affect us in Florida, it shows us what could happen in our state next.
Again, THANKS to everyone who supports our endeavors to secure our trapping future for all.
Mike Townson
Vice President
Florida Trappers Association
