Dan Johnson, the secretary from Northern Great Lakes Fur Harvesters is as frustrated as I am about the “apathy” of today’s trappers at a time when we are facing some of the toughest challenges to trapping that I have seen, since I started trapping in 1971! Below is a link to his October 2016 newsletter and I want you to pay special attention to the highlighted paragraph. If you can see ANYTHING in yourself that reminds you of the young man he is describing, I, too, want to say, “Get off your duff!!!!”
Also, below is a link to their 2017 Meeting Schedule. If you live on the East End of the U.P., show up at these meetings; stand up and be counted; get off your DUFF; and start being a part of the solution — not part of the problem!
