FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1 - SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2021

Come and join us for the 2021 Illinois Trappers Association Convention!  We will again be holding the event at the Macon County Fairgrounds in Decatur, Illinois.  The location is very well-centered in the state, so please plan on visiting us!

As usual, we have a large variety of dealers and tailgaters who are planning to attend, so you'll be sure to have many opportunities to pick up all the items you need for the upcoming season.  We've also arranged a great list of demos from some of the BEST TRAPPING PROFESSIONALS from Illinois and beyond.  There's no doubt you'll be able to pick up some very useful and effective tips and tricks from these seasoned trappers!
