Alaska Trappers Association
Position Statements on Key Issues
Over the years, there have been several trapping-related issues which have repeatedly risen to a high level of concern for our members and our organization.
After facing repeated debates and discussions on these issues, the ATA Board of Directors decided to adopt written statements expressing our views on these issues. In this way, we hope to provide a consistent position to decision-makers and the general population, as well.
These documents (known as Position Statements) have worked as we had hoped. We now hear Game Board members or Fish & Game personnel referring to our Position Statements during discussions of specific issues. The process has been gradual, but it has helped these people understand and accept our point of view.
