FIRST PLACE! I just received a First Place in the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association’s (POWA) 2020 Craft Awards. This was the Pennsylvania Trappers Award for my book “Perfect Sets – Bedding, Blending & Weatherproofing.” This means a lot to me. The POWA is a professional group of outdoor communicators, including writers, editors, artists, photographers, and those in charge of public relations for agencies such as the Pennsylvania Game Commission. To be recognized in this group for one of my works is so very incredible. This is the second year in a row I’ve received this award. Last year I received the Pennsylvania Trappers Award for my book “Cable Restraints – The Art of Live-Catch Snares.” What an awesome experience! I wish to express my sincere appreciation to the Pennsylvania Trappers Association for sponsoring this award. They have done so for a number of years now. It is a catalyst for POWA members to write more about trapping. Thank you, Pennsylvania Trappers Association!
