Whenever this crap is over with Russia and Ukraine, we'll get back to no politics. Right now there's a need for it on here, but it's only a temporary deal. I should have made this post awhile ago. Any conversations involving politics will remain civil. There's always been a bit of a gray area when it comes to politics on here, and at times I've been lenient about the rule, because I felt some things needed to be said.

Many thanks Paul. The TMan threads are a microcosm of us trappers.... all sorts. We're a brotherhood, whether or not we realize it.

Hey, Mrs. June and I will be set up next to you like the old days in MI this year. Joe gave us the premium spot next to Bossman!
Can't wait.

Blessings,
Mark

Paul. Well said. As a nation it is difficult to step forward with a high degree of fighting with each other.

Thanks Paul, this is the only place I get news and also express my thoughts for others opinions on them. It's one place I trust to expose flaws in my theories and at times eat some crow. There is nowhere else I know of with a such a diverse group with so vast backgrounds. Not only that but everyone's opinions and thought I respect enough to consider even if I ultimately determine to disagree with them. Most other places those different views I quickly discard without much if any consideration. I can only figure the difference here is I actually respect those here and that respect transfers over to consideration of different view points. It's good for me to reevaluate my views. About the same as staying close to my church family helps keep me accountable and on the correct path if that nakes any since.

Yep, even though people go back and forth on here, America is built upon the foundation of the back and forth.
As soon as it isn't, turn off the lights.

Ohio this year. Can't make PA but hope to again in the future. All the conventions occur each year in a short window and we pick and choose.
PA is one of our biggest states, as far as sales, same as NY and we miss the folks there.
A lot.

I need to get back there and stir up some good trouble!

Blessings,
Mark

Same here. Most of the folks here help me maintain my faith in my fellow countrymen. Times have never been more perilous.

Thanks Paul, crazy times we live in and unfortunately politics are affecting each and everyone of us right now. Even the hunting, fishing, and trapping industry has been effected. Northern BC just lost almost all their moose hunting and even Yukon outfitters are fighting for their livelihoods. Some have given up and sold out. Never seen anything like it.

It's related to trapping cause Russia use to buy ALOT of our fur!

Not sure how well convention's will be attended this summer with 6.00 a gallon gas, maybe everyone will have their electric car/truck by then.
