See the guys at Bethels. They have a live trap you’ll love. Heavy duty and I’d get the one with a back door that opens. You’ll see for yourself if you get there early enough and there’s one left. Good luck!

Thanks!

Also, is there a map anywhere of where the vendors are at?

Should be in the program. I haven't seen one yet though

Maps of the vendor buildings is in the printed program and also as a PDF file on the NTA website. The vendor list is alphabetical and shows space # and building name.

But there was a change after the programs were printed. All vendors listed in the Grandstand were moved to the Pavilion which is shown on the fairgrounds map as the Livestock Pavilion.

I understand that this also required some rearranging of vendors in the Pavilion as well but not sure how many were affected. So if the vendor list shows Pavilion or Grandstand, they are all in the Pavilion.

On my way shortly. Should get there hopefully by around 8 as there are a few items I want to pick up I hear are in short supply. Depends on how quickly I can get the 6 year old up and moving. I didn’t plan very good as I want to pick up some Hellfire but will have the wife’s vehicle.

My daughter and I made it to Spencer Wednesday evening. Looking forward to a fun convention. We will be in the tailgating area, one of her hobbies is baking so she wanted to bring some cookies and bread along to sell. Stop by and say hello, always good to put a face with a name!! Have a good time everyone!

That's funny! Better bring some electrical tape and tape it to the exterior!

Someone at trapping conventions should sell 50 cal ammo cans for folks to take home skunky lures in wive's vehicles. Bigger types (it is either 20mm or 40mm cans I think) for gallon jugs of bait and urine. That is what I bring for that purpose. grin

Please don't tell me that's the tailgating area. I'm already sad that I didn't get to to go. When I think of all the times I had to set up on asphalt. [Linked Image]

I tried visiting with the boss but my 6 year old was having none of it and was pretty much done with the long day he has had.

You should have given your 6 year old a sip of skeeter pee. That might have taken care of him for a couple of hours. LOL
