NYSTA is pleased to introduce Gracie.  Gracie won a Youth Packet Basket at our 2017 Convention.  Every year with the assistance of Mark Charpentier of the NY Elite Trappers Seminar. We are able to give away some free pack baskets full of traps and supplies geared towards our youth.  The baskets and supplies are donated by our Affiliates and other businesses.  Here in Gracie’s words is what she sent NYSTA.     “Hi, my name is Gracie. For the last three years I have been going to the trapping convention with my dad. This year I was lucky enough to win the kids raffle with the pack basket and trapping supplies. When trapping season opened dad help me set the traps and I could hardly wait to go check them with him. The first night I was lucky enough to catch a nice raccoon, a few days later I caught a grey fox in one of the 1.5 dukes we had set for raccoon. I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you very much for all you do. I cant wait for the 2018 convention. Thanks again Gracie Lynn age 9.”
