Alaska Frontier Trappers Association



Advocating and Educating Ethical Trapping since 1975

The Alaska Frontier Trappers Association is based in Southcentral Alaska, and is dedicated to promoting the professional ethics and practices in the trapping of fur bearing animals. We work to educate fellow trappers, children and the public in general about trapping as a necessary wildlife management and research tool.

We work in cooperation with other organizations to promote the wise and sustainable use of alaska's natural resources.

The Alaska Frontier Trappers Association, Inc. is a great organization to join and get connected with other trappers in the state. Click the button below to view the membership page to see the benefits of becoming a member today!
