Just dropping a note if anyone is interested. The UP Trappers Association convention will be held in Escanaba Michigan July 15-16. There’s a nice lineup of vendors and demos. I know, gas prices are tough right now but maybe make this a “don’t miss” event this year.

Demo headliner Mark June will be showing us some methods he uses. Along with some local “experts”.

Heres a list of vendors from the convention website https://uptrappers.com/convention-2/
