Presidents Report
Hello from Bristow, Oklahoma.
I hope this letter finds everyone doing well. The FTO has a LOT going on for future and we just held our Spring Meeting. You can read more about it in the quarterly newsletter and online at the website. There’s not a lot to report at this time and everyone knows we need the rain, but the flash flooding and tornados we can do without. We do have the new FTO patches which will be $5 each. If you wish to have some before a meeting, or purchase raffle tickets, you can mail payment to the FTO Address along with $5 for each patch you wish to have. If you choose this purchase option, please include a valid postal mailing address so that we can get you your patches and / or raffle tickets.
Please stay tuned to the F.T.O. Facebook page ( and website ( for the dates, times and locations of all F.T.O. Events. Please note that FTO Members Only can join the Fur Takers of Oklahoma, Inc. Facebook page at and the F.T.O. forum located at Members will need to create an account and have it approved to join and participate on either.

In closing … remember to take a kid or two out hunting, fishing or trapping with you when you go … the activity could literally have a positive effect on their lives and how they grow up. Fishing is good right now in Oklahoma and the Fall seasons are around the corner again. Be safe and we hope to see you at the Spring Meeting.
Reginald Murray, President
