This book contains a wealth of information on hunting and trapping with many illustrations for instruction. It presents full instructions for hunting the buffalo, elk, moose, deer, antelope, bear, fox and various birds including information on the localities where game abounds. The chapters on trapping tell you all about steel traps, how to make home-made traps for various types of animals and includes full directions for preparing pelts for market. Originally published in 1878 much of the information is of interest today to those who are enthusiasts and historians of the subject. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original artwork and text.
