Welcome to the wta


Welcome to the WTA

The Wisconsin Trappers Association (WTA) was organized in 1963 by a small group of individuals concerned about the future of our trapping heritage. Many of these individuals were also involved  in organizing the National Trappers Association four years earlier. 

Today’s members work to:

  • Protect our heritage and continue the traditions of the trapping community.
  • Educate the public about the benefits of responsible and regulated trapping activities.
  • Maintain a conservation ethic and participate in wildlife and habitat management programs.
  • Provide a comprehensive trapping education program .

We work to ensure the future of trapping by encouraging a large membership which:

  • Maintains a public outreach program that provides informational materials in many forms and at a variety of events.
  • Provides scholarships to students attending college.
  • Conducts trapper education course workshops.

As we move forward we will continue to increase our membership and to create opportunities which strengthen our association and the trapping community. We will do this through our public relations activities, our formal education program , and with the many volunteers in our membership who step forward each year to teach and help at events or activities.

We encourage your participation and appreciate your visit to our website. Browse our site and feel welcome to return anytime for up-to-date information on trapping.  Please join us and become another proud member of the Wisconsin Trappers' Association.
