ATA 2016 Snare Making Class

On Sunday the third of January we held a snare building clinic at the Alaska Department of Fish and Game's Indoor Shooting Range Classroom. We had nine students attend the school. Topics included Ethics, Cable and Hardware selection, hardware suppliers, tools, loop size, Wolf snare "Break-away" devices and building techniques. Following the lecture portion of the class we broke for lunch. After lunch the students then began building the snares themselves for practical experience under the supervision of the instructors. Snares covered were Beaver, Lynx, Coyote, Wolverine, Marten and Wolf. Our host from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Bob Hunter, provided a nice synopsis of the development and construction of the Wolf breakaway snare.

Instructors Jr Peterson and Jim Masek proved to be a wealth of information and I can't thank them enough for a fine job.

Finally I would especially like to thank Department of Fish and Game for the use of their facility.

2015 Fairbanks GO! Winter Show

On October 10-11th ATA manned a booth with our merchandise, Furs, literature, slide show and video with lots of information on our organization and our mission. I had many interesting conversations with trappers and non-tappers alike. Having a presence at these shows is very important to our organization and we are well received by the general public. On Sunday Alaska's only Congressman stopped by to visit. - Ross Beal
