Planning on going. That is some serious knowledge in that demo lineup.

John,
Do you know about the time you are going to start the Friday Demos?

I hope you continue this long enough for me to get out of school John. Definitely on a bucket list of things I'd like to get to in the near future.


Eventually everything must die.

We'll try to start the demos about 2 PM on Friday. Keith Gregerson has requested an hour and a half for his, so we'll conclude Friday evening's demos with his, which is on coyote snaring. If anyone has watched Keith talk, you know he does it with enthusiasm! He was one of the guys that I've basically brought back out of retirement of giving demos, and am proud to say that he is coming back this year. I've got some other plans for things that evening, and will announce them at a later date.

The Saturday demos will kick off at 8 a.m., and run continuously until 6 P.M.!

Honestly, the response and enthusiasm for this event has been off the charts. I urge anyone interested in coyotes and 'cats to attend.

I first saw Keith do a snaring demo in about 1981 or 1982 in Bridger MT. He was so far ahead of every one else as far as snaring went at that time, it was unreal. He is worth the trip alone. He is well worth listening too. I may make the trip just to see him again.

The weather is typically warm in August. 80's and maybe low 90's for a high, but 60-70's could happen too. And, since it's Wyoming, we could get a high wind and rain/hail storm for 5 minutes, and then be sunny again. Be prepared for anything. Nights are typically cooler, and much more comfortable. NOT freezing though. Breezy and comfortable for sleeping.

I'll talk to the fairgrounds to see if people can start setting up tents on Thursday. They are in charge of collecting money, but since they aren't open on the weekend, we agreed to collect any money from late comers. Charge is $5/night for tents, and $25/night for campers with hook ups to water and electricity. There is bathrooms and showers right there too. NO fires though!

The response has been great, actually off the charts. This will be a history making event, with top quality people involved, a full agenda, and also a perfect tribute to my friend, John Vaia. See you there, and Thanks.

Keep the updates coming. Is there a banquet or something similar? Any shade at the fairgrounds?

There will be a $5 charge for anyone 18 and over, and that's for admittance over the 2 day event. Included in that $5 is a ticket for a Ruger 22-250 that will be drawn for Saturday after the last demo. (Need not be present to win)

Yes, there is quite a bit of shade along the fence where the camping is.

The Saturday night banquet will have a guest speaker, raffle drawings, and a Fur Fashion Show, including several on loan from our friends at Somper Furs in L.A., Michael & Donna Pappas. There will be a cash bar in the banquet room also. We aren't reserving or pre-selling tickets for the banquet, as they are on a first-come, first served basis.

We will be cutting up loins of Rib Steaks the night before, and have several grills going to feed a lot of people in a hurry!

Be coming from North Daota, sounds like a good time. Last January at our NDFTA fur sale, John Vaia was one of our registered buyers, was able to visit with him at length, a nice Man. Could hardly believe it when Johnny Hughes told me of his passing, so sad.

Bruce, Yes, it came as a surprise to me as well, when John passed away so suddenly. I'd just talked to him that morning, and were going to finish the conversation that night, but never got to. A wake up call for sure. And that brings up another thing. I'm encouraging people to visit as much as possible at Coyote Days, and to get a picture or two with some of the guys that they look up to, and have heard about. I can't tell you how much that I regret not getting more pictures of people that I've met in the past. This event will be a chance for getting it done. None of us are going to be around forever.

I also had a great visit with our close friend, Dick Hane, from Fruita, Colorado. I first met Dick at the Rocky Mountain Fur Exchange Auction in Denver, in 1983. We've got to be good friends over the years, and we've had many conversations that I learned a lot. Dick was a real long line trapper in his early years, and ran an ADC business for quite awhile too. He is a treasure chest of knowledge, and I was glad to have him confirm that he will be part of the Friday Evening round table discussion. It was great news!

Dick Hane is the trapper who got me started on the right track when I was young. I still call him ever so often and visit, it was a pleasure seeing him at the Western last June in Livingston.
Definitely one of the best persons I have had the privilege of knowing.

The Museum of the Fur Trade is an hour down the road into Nebraska at Chadron, with Ft. Robinson and museum and a buffalo herd in between near Crawford, Neb. Both are always on the agenda for a visit. Lusk has a museum that is well worth spending a couple of hours. Lusk also has a pizza house that is the best you'll find anywhere. There's a loop road you can take that is quite a pretty drive, from Lusk to Manville, north to Lance Creek, east to the N-S highway 85 and back to Lusk. Takes an hour to an hour and a half.
