    That time of the year is getting closer.........Who's going & to which ones?

    Our Indiana State Trappers Association is the middle of next month in Bedford (southern Indiana), and I'll be attending. Going to set-up (lol, and hopefully) & sell a few traps & do some trapwork. I'm hoping to get away enough to enjoy some of the convention though & meet some folks, see some demos, check-out the tailgaters & vendors......and eat some junkfood :smile2: .

    They're a good time...and a good place to meet some local trappers, and those you've met online, but never in person. I've made some good friends there, as I have here.

    For those who've never been, you'll have a good time & learn alot in the process.

    I am hoping to make the Virginia one in October. I have never been to one before and this one is pretty close to home.
