Copper Country Trappers

Persons, Manners and Customs, Recreation, Wildlife-Related Recreation, Hunting, Sign of the times? - $640 in 1947 - $71 today...that is the predicament the beaver trappers are in. Copper Country trappers are shown having their pelts tagged by the Conservation Dept. ready for sale to fur buyers. Beaver trappers who came and went often took their pelts with them rather than "give them away" for the price offered by buyers. [Image of some of the trappers displaying their pelts. Please see comment section for additional information.]
