Trapping contest: Join the BC Pocket Gopher Board of Fame

A new Board of Fame is coming to Becker County.

Roger Engstrom is helping organize an event to recognize people in Becker County who trap pocket gophers. The event will take place during the Becker County Fair, Aug. 7-10.

Members of the Cormorant Lakes Sportsman’s Club will have a box at their booth in the Natural Resources Building at the fair for people to drop their registration slips off.

While there is no monetary gain from this wall of recognition, Engstrom said that many townships will pay a bounty for pocket gophers trapped and turned in.

The fair competition consists of a youth category (ages 16 and younger) and adults (ages 17 and above). Recognition will be Saturday evening when the Century Farm Awards are presented.

For more information, call Roger Engstrom at 847-8841.
