“Working to Preserve our Trapping Heritage”

If you are a trapper living in Marquette, Alger, or Schoolcraft counties consider joining district 5 of the U.P. Trappers Association by going to the website “Join” page to print out the Membership Enrollment form. Make the check payable to U.P. Trappers Association District 5 and send the form to the proper District.

Our future depends on trappers becoming proactive and fighting for our rights and the way to help out is by joining an organization that is doing just that!

District 5 is now publishing a nice newsletter to keep their members informed on what is going on and they also have a private FaceBook page for their members. Here is a link to District 5’s Facebook Page: UP Trappers Association District 5 Facebook Page.
