Hello to all and I hope everybody is having a good summer. As we are heading into convention time, man where does the time go, we will be looking forward to seeing a lot of you at the convention in Illinois in July.
Well, the Maine Incidental Take Permit law suit is not over. The plaintiffs have filed an appeal for the judge's decision, which this is no big surprise. I’m sure Chris will have more on this in his report.
AFWA, Furbearer Resources Technical Working Group has completed the 2016 Summary of Furbearers Trapping Regulations in the United States Survey. This will be posted on the AFWA website. www.fishwildlife.org 
So if you would like to view it, there are 169 pages to look over. There is lots of great information. So I hope you enjoy! I would like to say a big thanks to Bryant White and Tom Decker. They did a great job on this and I hope you can take time to look it over.
Also, was completed from the AFWA Furbearers Technical working Group was the 2017 Bodygrip Traps on Dry land , A Guide to Responsible Use is some every good information. You can find it on their web site also.
That is all I have for now. Hope everyone has a safe trip to and from all the conventions this year and a good time!
