Itís frustrating for those in leadership who give their time, energy and money to a cause and others who benefit from that effort are offended when they arenít asked to join to their liking.

Support your local association first. Then you can look at either the FTA or NTA

The only things standing between us and losing our trapping rights nationwide are the NTA, FTA and local/state organizations. So I belong to NTA, FTA, state and local organizations because I want to continue trapping until I'm too old or gone. For me, it's that simple.

Mort neff, you left out Sportsman's Alliance, they appear to be in ALOT of court battles over trapping as well.

Fair enough. But it's not that expensive to join them all.

Well this thread worked on me. As a middle-aged new trapper who has become obsessed with it, I am trying to make up for lost time, not having the benefit of growing up with it like most. I also want to pass trapping along to my kids and get them started young so they can enjoy it for their lifetimes. My timing in life is terrible as I usually get into most things past their prime or when they are fizzling out. "Should have been here yesterday" is the story of my life, and so the prospect of losing the privileged to trap scares the crap out of me. I just joined my state agency and will join NTA tonight.

Just what I was going to ask.

But this thread reminds me that my ATA membership has lapsed, and I need to rejoin. Especially if they're in the middle of a lawsuit.

Who knows, I might even rejoin the NTA, despite the old dissidents' dispute.

Thanks for the post. I'm a PA and NTA member. I never considered FTA, but I just filled out the application. If I trapped in multiple states, I'd join them as well.

We buzz all year on this site about liberals and democratic politicians taking our trapping privilege's. We cuss each other over opinions given on this site, cut each other down but to many make to little effort to join, donate and write letters to those that make the laws. I know some are very active and do join and make contributions, but guessing more do not, or don't do enough. Worried about the fur prices, or the coyote you didn't catch, wait till you can't trap anymore! Once the privilege is gone it will be next to impossible to get back, ask Colorado or any other state that has lost out. There is no state that they are not putting tremendous pressure on us from all avenues. I'm not a computer guy or would post Mr. Daniels the letter maybe someone else could. Please join if your not a member, sign someone up or make a donation, the clock is ticking. If your a member no offense was intended, give a few more bucks and write at least on letter. If your not a member shame on you, no excuses.


Yah you got my attention..
Click bait things like this just PMO.. Your post would have been fine with me right up to the last line..

[/qoute] If your not a member shame on you, no excuses.[/quote]

I've heard this crap my whole life starting in grade school when they set the Red Cross donation box on teacher desk..Some one going shame ya..
As a fire fighter I risk getting fired for calling out the our city mayor. He wrote an open letter to all city employees similar to this post about United Way.
I wrote just as open a letter back telling him I didn't appreciate being scolded...
I was taught at young age I could choose to join what groups I wanted and support them how I wanted.
Seem there are always some people that think if you don't belong to their group.. Support the same ideas they support same way..Anyone who doesn't do the same is some how taking something from them???
Sit on their high horse and preach down..You only put a $5 in the plate I put a $10...
So anyone not an NTA member is just "Welfare Trapper" as another here believes..
I've been an NRA, NTA, WTA, DU, TF, Blah Blah Blah member different groups, off an on over the years for various reason... I even had a subscription to Fur,Fish, Game Ooooohh
I don't need to explain to any one why I am or why I'm not member some group, party, Mob.. Certainly not going to be encouraged by being shamed to join any..
I read a post like this... Person like myself will say Pack You NTA in your rear.. Just because I can..

So there is my whinny Arse Looser Opinion..
Rant over!

I was NRA member for years, bought a gun with a five dollar coupon sent it in w/ my check for renewal they stamped void on it with a note saying insufficient funds. That ended that. Then the MTA (missouri) l was a member hot shot to see what I could do to help out, his responds was there's not enough interest in my part of the state for them to worry about. I thought well p___ on you.
The good ole boyz clubs, seems to me.
In saying that I'm a member of groups that appreciate what I can do.

One thing you need to remember is that when the trapping organizations are lobbying the politicians to fight anti trapping legislation,the only thing that matters to the politician is the number of members on the membership list.
The more weight your organization carries (membership numbers)is the only thing that gets the politicians attention,and what gets trappers favourable results.Nothing else comes close.
Every single trapper should belong to as many trapping organizations as will lobby in their intrests.
