Reporter Question

Hi everyone,

I received a question from a reporter considering a story on Nebraska Trappers.
He puts his request as follows.
The business editor at the Lincoln Journal Star is interested in any reports you may want to give him, preferably by email, to begin with, on this fur trapping season, its success or lack therof, the market for furs, and any other insight you may offer on this business. He is not a trapper, but is interested in writing a story at some point later in the season to describe how many people participate in this market in Nebraska, who some of them are, how successful they are and to what degree they do it for money or love of the outdoors.

Put your responses on this site or email me at stephenvantassel@hotmail.com
