About the PTA

The PTA is made up of eleven districts. Each district consists from five to seven counties and is under the supervision of a District Director. The eleven District Directors, the President, two Vice Presidents (East and West), the Secretary, Treasurer, Editor, Public Relations, NTA and FTA Directors make up the Board of Directors or Executive Committee. Their responsibilities include: to further the cause of the association, advance its aims and purpose, represent its members in legislative matter, formulate polices and designate the course of action of the organization.

PTA Accomplishments in Brief

The Pennsylvania Trapper’s Association gathers information from its membership and makes recommendations to the PA Game Commission for trapping seasons and bag limits. The Pennsylvania Trappers Association grew from just a handful of trappers in 1936 to become the largest state Trapper’s organization in the United States. Many of our ideas and concepts have been employed are are still in use by other state and national organizations.
