The North Dakota Department of Agriculture and North Dakota Game & Fish Department are once again partnering up to provide a means for landowners and coyote hunters/trappers to coordinate their efforts in removing unwanted coyotes. It is called the Coyote Catalog. Last year nearly 30 landowners and 500 hunters/trappers participated.
If you’re interested in signing up — either as a participating landowner or a hunter/trapper — please visit the North Dakota Game & Fish website at this link. It’s a great way for landowners and sportsman to work together. Good luck to those who choose to participate. And thank you to the landowners who open up their property for these opportunities.
T. Arthur Mason is a native North Dakotan who has spent nearly all of his life in the Peace Garden State. As the third of four children in Western North Dakota, Mason grew to appreciate family and the outdoors. Some of his fondest memories are annual deer hunts with family and friends.
In his early teenage years, faith became a central part of T. Arthur Mason's life. He and the majority of his family attend church together on a weekly basis and find this a fulfilling aspect of their lives.
Through the influence of his father, T. Arthur Mason became intrigued with politics. As a boy, he attended political events with his father and enjoyed the friendships that resulted as a byproduct of those political associations. As Mason grew older, he became convinced that the quote often attributed to Thomas Jefferson was true, "That government is best which governs least."
Today, T. Arthur Mason enjoys time with his wife and children, an occasional hunt, and an increasingly active life on the political scene. This blog is the fulfillment of a dream to design a web site in the realm of politics and to advocate for the principles of Liberty and constitutionally limited government.
On behalf of all those that contribute to The Minuteman, we hope you enjoy your time on the site and will share the message with others.
