WVTA Annual Convention
969 Prunty Road
Smithville, WV 26178

Due to the amount of time it takes to plan a  convention, the board of directors decided not to take any chances for another canceled convention. This year's convention will be semi-primitive and be held on private property, which eliminates any problems stemming from Covid-19 stipulations. This is a  one-time location change, and the convention will encourage a family atmosphere.

The convention committee is hard at work preparing a unique convention which will include on-site trapping demos -- water trapping will be held at the creek and river, and land trapping will be tailored to actual farmland, forests and fence rows -- all of which are on the convention grounds.  Of special emphasis will be trap setting locations, which can be visualized on site, rather than in an enclosed demo area.

This convention will be similar to those held many years ago -- families are encouraged to camp and spend quality  time together. Trappers will be encouraged to spend time perfecting their skills in prime trapping locations.  There is no cell phone service or internet at the convention location, so this will be like the conventions of yesteryear.

Although there are no hookups for campers, we have plenty of space for both wheeled campers and tents. Outdoor showers, bathrooms and water will be provided.

As a special treat this year, we bring back the Civil War Encampment, which will provide a living history lesson for attendees.

In addition to our trapping supply vendors, we will also have some unique vendors and activities which will provide a new learning experience, such as beekeeping, basket making, trot lining, turtle skinning and outdoor learning.

Our website will be updated frequently as we add to our vendor and demo list.
