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

Casting Call

Dear Nebraska Fur Harvesters,

I received this e-mail so I am making the membership aware of the request. I did not verify this company and no claim is being made regarding it, so buyer beware. I have attached it below.

Stephen M. Vantassel, Secretary.
Hi, Nebraska Fur Harvesters,

My name is Molly Tom. I’m a Casting Associate with Leftfield Entertainment, a full scale television production company that creates a number of programs for various cable networks, such as The History Channel, Discovery, A&E and National Geographic – including the international smash hit, “Pawn Stars.”

I wanted to reach out the Nebraska Fur Harvesters about a new project we are working on that could be a great opportunity for some of your members, or maybe even you! It would be a great help if you could spread the word or refer us to anyone you know that might be a good fit for this.

We’re currently developing an exciting new series with a major cable network that is going to ask the strongest self reliance experts and enthusiasts in the world a very simple question – how long could you survive alone in the wild? We’re looking for folks who want to prove that they have the skills, determination, willpower and mental strength to take part in the ultimate survival experience. No gimmicks. No film crew. No games. The series will feature a group of self-reliance specialists as they brave the elements to survive on their terms with nothing but what they can carry on their backs. Their mission: to survive alone in the wild for an extended period of time and self-document their journey every step of the way. If this seems like something you would be interested in, we’d love to hear from you. Likewise, if you know someone else who might be right for this, please let us know. Any help spreading the word would be greatly appreciated. Below is the link to our casting application.


I’ve included our casting notice, but if you have any questions or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to email me at molly.tom@leftfieldpictures.com or call me directly at 212-564-2607 ext.2698.

Thank you in advance and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
