This trailer was parked not far from Alberta, near LAnse, Saturday. The five using it were not around, no doubt because they were after their quarry on an old logging road on which they parked the trailer. The occupants were indicated by the camp certificate as being Charles and Minnie Goodsell of Sheridan, and Lewis, Lyle and Elsie Palmer of Mason, both Lower Michigan towns. Several tents and trailers were parked between LAnse and Three Lakes. [A small trailer complete with curtains is parked on a muddy road. Some groceries sit on the top of the trailer.]

Hunting

Manners and Customs, Recreation, Wildlife-Related Recreation, Hunting, Persons, Seasons, Winter Forty-Two hunters gathered to track down the marauding coyotes that have been killing deer along the Graverod-Elm-Misery Rivers area. Gathered here are about 25 of them from which two Walker fox hounds and a Russian wolfhound set out on various tracks to stir up the wily predator. Not one fresh deer track was seen, but coyote trails were as numerous as pebbles on a beach. At night the packs of coyotes can be heard for miles and they range as far east as the Toivola Road in Beacon Hill to the Ontonagon County line in the west. Hunters gathered here came from as far as Skanee and L'Anse. [Image of the hunters and their dogs. Please see comment section for list of individuals pictured.]

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.]
