April 15, 2014

Below is a email sent by Aaron Ghaemi (ODWC Furbearer Biologist) to Clifton Ray (OFBA Director). This is good news indeed.

About OFBA | Oklahoma Fur Bearers Alliance

About OFBA

The Oklahoma Fur Bearers Alliance was formed after merging the previous Oklahoma Fur Harvesters Association with the First Oklahoma Trapper & Predator Caller Association in the Fall of 2006. The merger of the two former associations brought together a standing membership of 486 individuals from the date of the merger and has since attracted new youthful and adult members, as well as new sponsors and affiliates. We invite eveyone who realizes the necessity of a single strong organization in Oklahoma, which can properly represent your heritage, rights and interests … while focusing on wildlife conservation … to join us today.

In Recognition

The OFBA is proud to recognize and represent the Conservationists here in Oklahoma. We ask each of you to make an appearance at our functions whenever possible to make your voices heard so that we can better represent you within the State of Oklahoma.
