Iíll be there. It would be great to meet some of the Hunt-Wa crew. This is also a great event for people who are interested in getting in to the sport of trapping. Lots of seminars and learning opportunities.

I had a great time and got to hang out with some great trappers.  Food was excellent, weather was great and the demos were very good.  The live auction raised a BUNCH of money.  They had a nice fur show.  All the vendors I spoke to said they had a good show.  One vendor who had 5 booths, broke down in MT, so he was not able to make it.  Great event, beautiful spot with plenty of room for parking and spread out nicely.  Really good turnout I thought.

Great Rendezvous for their first rendezvous.
Friday I think they said 325 went through the gate.  Not sure what Saturday numbers were.
Food was real good even the hamburgers at the food truck.
I took in a couple of demo's.
NO-BS traps SOLD OUT of everything he had.  Vendors made money.

Live auction went real good, no body was sitting on their hands and they spent money at the auction.......example:
The 1st Idaho Trapper Magazine that I put together for them was autographed by the guy on the front cover went for $680.00 the first time (Buyer sent it back) and sold the 2nd time for $160.00.

I sold quit a few of my traps.  People were in the spending mod for sure.
