Alaska Trappers Association

Trappers are dedicated outdoor enthusiasts. We recognize that other back-country users love the wildlife and wild lands of Alaska just as much as we do. We strive to avoid conflicts with these folks.

I Know Heimo



$25.00 each

Heimo Korth is a legend amongst Alaskan trappers. Heimo has been living a (very) remote lifestyle for the past forty years. Heimo received ATA's Fabian Carey Trapper of the Year award in 2003, in recognition of his commitment and dedication to trapping. Heimo's sense of humor and engaging personality have won him friends near and far. Back in the 1980s, some of those friends created ball caps with the slogan "I Know Heimo," which brought smiles to the faces of many in the trapping community.

More recently, Heimo has become one of the featured cast members in the excellent reality TV show entitled "Last Alaskans." The program has brought widespread notoriety to our good friend Heimo. This seems like an appropriate time to resurrect the old slogan and share a smile with Heimo's new friends and admirers. Be the first kid on your block to wear one of our new "I Know Heimo" caps.

Watch this wonderful new 2-minute video about the North American fur trade produced by our friends at TruthAboutFur.com. And be sure to visit their website and blog!

Music & Mascot

For the past few years, a few of us have considered the idea of having an ATA "theme song". We investigated a few options. The best alternative involved creative Fairbanks genius Craig Compeau. Craig has been using well-known melodies and modifying the lyrics to fit his views. Many of the resulting songs are humorous criticisms of government. Others focus on life in Alaska. Everyone can agree that they are well done.

ATA Director Dan Tempel heard a song that he liked and realized that the lyrics could be modified to tell a great story about Alaska trappers. We asked Craig if he could work his magic. Craig enlisted the aid of local singer Roger McGill. You can hear the result by clicking on the button below. We hope you like it.

If you want to download the song, go to Craig's website: www.alaskansongs.com.

Meet our mascot, Ben Wood. But we just call him Woody.
