Steve Salas, Ray Foelich, Mark Williams and Rowdy and Dena Woodson attended the Cabela's Grand Opening in League City, TX March 19th and 20th, where they represented the Texas Trappers and Fur Hunters Association and said "howdy" to many people in attendance.  A special Thank You to all who helped at the event!  It's at events like this that trapping is presented to the general public in a positive manner and we're striving to do more shows as an organization.  If you know of an event in your area, or would like to lend a hand at future shows, contact your district director.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Red Salas, Mark Williams and Ray Froelich shown below

The 3 day trapper workshop, Feb. 19th-21st; Blanco Co. was a huge success.  36 people attended/participated during this workshop --TPWD Education Staff including Steve Hall, Game Wardens, Ag Science Teachers, Directors of Youth Leadership Camps, Park Rangers, and Hunter Ed volunteer instructors.

Many variety of animals were trapped (bobcats, grey foxes, raccoons, opossums), and the night time varmint calling activity produced coyotes, ring-tailed cats, and grey foxes.

The trio, Jim Brooks, Earle Blakney, and Keith Jackson, put on a magnificent workshop, and we're looking forward to next year’s event!  A special Thank You to these fine TTFHA Trappers!

Everyone loves it when you catch a bobcat and this year's group of TTFHA instructors, Jimmy, Keith, and Earle have years of experience not only catching Texas predators, but showing others how to do it also.  Here's a "prime" example!
