The Texas Trappers and Fur Hunters Association’s Fall Rendezvous will be held once again at the Stevenson Center in Junction, Texas on Friday afternoon and all day Saturday, October 16 – 17, 2015. All persons interested in these types of outdoor activities are invited to attend this free event.
Headlining the show will be “Mr. Coyote”, Byron South, one of the most widely respected predator callers in North America. Byron plans to conduct a calling seminar before lunch on Saturday, then visit with and answer questions for attendees.
There will also be several well known trappers demonstrating some of their most effective sets and other trapping skills. There is usually a lot of just plain old visiting going on, and many times newcomers can gain some valuable information just by listening and asking a few questions. Our members are always glad to help and encourage others.
On Saturday morning there will also be activities and contests for all ages. Vendors will set up to sell just about any kind of supplies you might need. As usual, TTFHA will be providing a fried catfish lunch around 1:00 P.M. Saturday, followed by a live auction of sponsor-donated items and a short business meeting. This is a family friendly event, so bring the kids.
The TTFHA has been around for a long time. We advocate the wise use and sustainability of one of man’s most valuable natural resources. Education, conservation, and the ethical harvest of wild animals are very important to our organization.
The demographics of Texas have changed from rural to urban oriented. The majority of Texans have little understanding of or concern for the lifestyle of a hunter or trapper. Although we have flown under the anti’s radar for a long time, Texas is not immune to their activities and efforts. Many other states have suffered the consequences of their radical agenda.
The TTFHA always needs new members to strengthen our position. Please attend our event or visit our web site at wwwtxtrappers.com and consider joining. Trapping and fur hunting are kid friendly and just two more ways to enjoy the great outdoors.
