VTA District 1 September monthly report

Travis Bandy

    For those of you that don’t know, I took over District 1 director in July. I would like to thank Larry King for all the work he did as district 1 director. He did a great job for our district along with the help of some hard working members. I am looking forward to keeping our district growing.

    I would like to thank everyone that showed up for the fish fry and family picnic in the month of August. They were both a success. We will possibly do more meetings like this in the summer months. It is events like these that help to keep our district strong. In the coming months we have a lot planned and I encourage you all to participate. The Bland Rendezvous is scheduled for October 18th and 19th. We will be having fur demos this year. We will also raffle off a Henry Golden Boy 22. We have always had a good turn out with this event. The fur sale is scheduled for Saturday, March 1st at the Wytheville livestock market. I invite all members to join us for our monthly meetings. They are held the second Sunday each month at 3:00pm at the Shoney’s in Wytheville.

    This year we have a new law that has some trappers scratching their head and some wondering why we have it. In the Virginia game laws book you can find the new law on page 8; for more detail read page 52. It is important to know and understand this new law.

    If anyone has any questions or suggestions for me, you can get in touch at 276-210-7105 or For any member changes or updates you can visit or
