I always enjoy reading Mike's column in the FTA Magazine. He has a style of writing that makes you think you are standing next to whatever event he is writing about and watching it unfold. He mentions in the May issue that he has been writing for the magazine for over 30 years. Don't know how he keeps his columns fresh and new, but he does. Keep up the good work, Mike.

I was the editor of the magazine when Mike started in 1997 I believe it was. He may have submitted some articles prior to that but I don't remember any.

He's been a great asset to the FTA magazine for a long time.

I've seen his informative writings in various trapping publications through the years...

Started corresponding with him about varmint and crow hunting back in the 80's, and still
read his articles 'til this day.

Top notch guy!

I have always enjoyed his articles.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Thanks guys, much appreciated compliments. Like I joke about to my wife, Iím just glad someone is reading my stuff. Lol And Gerald Iím running out of stuff to write about...lol
Bernie, I wrote for the Furtaker back when Bill and Dee Jackson ran the magazine. Boys we are getting old.
It amazes me how much behind the scenes work our officers past and present in FTA, NTA and other sportsmen organizations have accomplished. Look at the great work Paul has done for trappers with this forum. We trappers are lucky to have been around these type of people who are as passionate as we are.

Have read his articles for years. We're all lucky to have men like him sharing what they know and their life experiences. Thank you Mike
