Like you, I used to think courses were expensive and felt under informed about the ATA and their business....then I got involved....I was shocked (in a good way) by all the great things the association and its MANY VOLUNTEERS are doing to ensure trapping and trappers remain relevant in our province and beyond our boarders

You pile on the ATA a lot and I canít figure out why....if you are as passionate about trapping as you make out to be you should get involved. you have some good ideas and i think the organization would welcome some of your out of the box thinking. Itís never to late

All a person can say is there is one on every forum.

Mean while another FOIP is being requested and read without a true understanding of what is being read. Then wheels start turning and non factual conclusions get drawn. Afraid of getting involved in any capacity they just point fingers.

i'm going to talk to trapper mike (aka fat fingers) on the phone and try to make some sense out of all this; and I will respect his wishes if he doesn't want me to talk about it on the forum.

I've never had anything to do with ata, and I have no axe to grind....but when I make a seemingly reasonable request for details, only to be shut down, it becomes a bit of a mission to find out what the hell is going on behind the scenes.

as is abundantly clear after reading all the opinions here, it sure doesn't appear that an informed decision will be easy to find.

A lot of the courses or seminars are put on by locals who may raise funds that way. I say take a seminar, get the certificate and make this all a moot point. These snaring seminars have been going on for years, we took one in Drayton in about 2009, made some knew friends and if you don't learn something you're not paying attention. If you are a member of the ATA you will automatically be a member of a local. Make sure you're on the e-mail or phone list and raise concerns there.
See you in Westlock.
Doug

If you check the ATA website, the registration form is there to download and the Fee is $80

The only person that said 400 bucks for a snaring course was D Dave. If the seminar isnít sponsored the cost is usually 80.

I check on this forum often and canít believe some of the BS I see a few people post. Some people figure the world is against them..... and it would be entertaining to be in that house hold. Lol

South where? Anyone can help setup a course or workshop. Find a place, some people and work on a date with Ross. Call the ATA and see if there is one planned for the local. Call your local and see if they can help get one setup.

I would love to go. $80 is a bargain, as a new trapper or even as a experienced one, you can never turn down new ideas. There is always ways we can approve and learn from each others mistakes. I'm glad for the community that this is happening. Alix is way out of my way. It would be nice if they did something online so it could reach all of us. Go ATA!! I love what your doing.
