Tennessee Fur Harvesters Association


Welcome to the Tennessee Fur Harvesters
We are dedicated to preserving our heritage and our rights as outdoors men, with a special emphasis on trapper training, proper trapping methods and the management of Tennessee's furbearers.

TFHA invites you to attend any of our scheduled events held through out the year.  These events range from district meets, to rendezvous, to fur sales.  These events are a great opportunity for new trappers to learn more about our great sport of trapping, not to mention the many friends one will make while in the company of fellow sportsman.

Next event will be:
