August 4, Final Convention Day, 2012:
Today was the last day of the convention for me, tomorrow is just a few trap sales and what not.
All I can say is Wow, I sure am glad I went to the convention. I'm told today, that it was the biggest National Convention since a previous one in Wisconsin. Someone had said including the dealers and tailgaters there was around 10,000 in attendance.
Ended up coming out of it all with
4 dozen 110's
a few 330's
8 different muskrat traps (#1 jump, #1, #1 coil etc.)
dozen Victor Rat Traps for weasel
2 dozen Belisle 120 Super X
1 dozen Belisle 220 Super X
1/2 dozen Belisle 160 Super X
3 dozen under ice beaver snares
1/2 dozen colony traps (will make more)
10 stoploss (could not find any worth buying or any for a good price)
and some various forming boards, lures and bait and other odds and ends.
Will post pictures and probably a little video when I get back to Manitoba and get things sorted out.
Approx. 137 traps total, and then the snares. So bring on Trapping Season!
Watched a few demo's the rest of the day and had a good time, despite the heat!
Definatly recommend you check out the NTA convention if it's near you!
