Mattracks are made in Karlstad. You need to get out of the house a little more.

I am considering making the trek to this event. Would it be possible to give a little preview into the presentations and the folks giving them? I appreciate the added information.

Somewhat large construction/redi-mix outfit. That is where the airliner sat for a time being

You're not going to land a 747 in a field. It was hauled. IIRC the wings were off.

Brad Wobbrock is the District 8 Director for the MTA and is from Southern Minnesota. I know that he's trapped in Alaska and I'm guessing that he open water traps the Minnesota river as he heralds from Cleveland Minnesota. Brad, pipe in and tell us a little more about yourself! smile

Demo 2 is Rally Hess from Hill City Minnesota. Anybody that does any snaring likely already knows him as he owns Rally's Snares. Rally traps professionally has a really interesting background of having done Predator control in nesting areas for the DU or Delta. He is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to beaver trapping (ADC and fur), and manufactures snares for use all over the world.
What did I miss Rally?

Brad will be evaluating les's skinning demo closely as his methods provide him and his partner 25 to 40 beaver a day in the spring. &#128522;

I have been clean skinning beaver since I started trapping them in the "80s" . I only recently tried putting them up any other way. Clean skinning is becoming more rare these days.

Geez Les, how clean do you need to be while skinning beaver? Why not just clean up when your finished. That must have been a huge pile of beaver if you've been skinning them since the 80's. Either that or you're really slow. laugh

Ken, have you ever seen the pictures of Les's kitchen? Clean isn't a big priority!

If he had any sense he'd hire the neighbor lady to come over and tidy up, among other things....................

Cory Van Driel is from the Mille Lacs Lake area and has vast knowledge in the ways of marten and fisher. He's also been a long time member of the MTA and is very involved in the FTA from helping with their Trappers College to their Raffle.

Yep, I've seen them. There's no denying his culinary skill though. He eats like a King.
