Moosey, we have out of town guests this weekend or we would find an hour or two to sneak over there.

You should have great rendezvous weather!

By the way, will we see you at the FTA and Trapperman Feed?

Will miss you guys! Not sure I can make the FTA. I am very overdue for a big antique sale plus it looks like my left hip is going out on me now so my time on my feet is probably limited. Have turned into a gimpy, grumpy old curmudgeon. Probably best for me to hang around home and get rid of some antiques.

Taking a bunch of traps, axes, buffalo skulls, and other cool stuff up to Mondovi, though! It does look like the weather will be good so really gonna have a good time up there!

Great Summer Rendezvous for WTA D5! I have to say the Mondovi Conservation Club grounds and building are about the most beautiful venue I've seen. Log Construction building and the main room was air conditioned! Food was prepared by the High School Trap Team as a fundraiser. The weather could not have been better either. Sounds like the D5 Summer Rondezvous will be back at the same place.

Good job to Bill Wrasse and the D5 crew that put this together. Nice to spend the whole day with none other than Muskrat and his dog Charlie. My son Dan showed up and managed to sell a couple of his new turned coyote calls which sound great!

(I have to admit I'm kind of cheerful right now because I won a beautiful hooped black Beaver which was one of the bucket raffles.)

Great time yesterday nice to see everyone again. The boys and I had a real fun time. My son Ted won a trap and a Mark June dvd. His buddy and mink trapping partner Liam picked up a couple #1 coilsprings from one of the fine tailgaters and he threw in a mink board so Liam could put them up proper...thanks for that
cool

Wish I had a picture of Jimmy Ellis' demo: A new trapping technique!!!! It is a good one! (Guess everyone is sorry they didn't make it to the D5 rendezvous) Bruce Kees put on a good demo on water sets for mink and raccoon.


These are a few of the tailgaters.

Moosetrot thanks again to your son. My ears may never recover. Those calls are real well made and produce alot of loud screams in the hands of a 7 and 8 year old.

The venue was very nice and a good turn out for a week before the FTA.



The kids had a great time picking the numbers for the bucket drawings.


Thanks to everyone who donated time and prizes to make this happen and...

thanks to Beaver Creek Trap and Fur for taking time to come to the D5 Rondy. I am sure you were busy preping for the FTA as well.

What a good day. We had to stop and feed the ducks in Eleva on the way home.

The call was a hit at home too. (With all the boys more than their moms.)

Trap Setter-I will pass the Thanks on to my son, Dan. He really is putting out some nice predator calls. Even before the Rondy he was excited about being able to give some away to kids. Our apologies to your wife grin

I also want to congratulate you on your kids. Really a good bunch you're bringing up. Really fun to watch them in action!

Good time was had by WTA D5!

Yeah to tell the truth their behavior somewhat surprised me too. I was very impressed at the way all the kids (and there must have been 5 or 6 under 10 years) were so well behaved during the almost two hr meeting.
