He tells stories of hunting and trapping behind where my cabin is now. It's a great read and really neat to think he's talking about the same areas I hunt.

You should do some wondering around your area. You may find something interesting that was once his.

While looking for a hardcover edition of the above book I came across a first edition (1854).

Pioneer Life, or Thirty Years a Hunter

The price tag is $4,250.00. But it's only $12.00 shipping. laugh

I suggested to my daughters that it would make a nice present for my upcoming birthday. grin


Eh...wot?

I am from McKean Co. and my sister lives in Potter, just outside of Coudersport. Woodcock's grave is across the road from North Hollow were my sister lives. I did a video visit to his grave marker last summer. I would post it but I can't figure out how to post videos on TMan. The clip is on my computer, not on any other platform. I have read Tome's book also. It is interesting to imagine what the country was like back then. Woodcock talks about trapping marten.

Would love to see it. Could any members help with posting?

John, I don't think you can load a video directly to Tman. I upload them to YouTube then they can be shared here.

My camp is about fifteen miles north of Coudy, a few mile west of Millport. I would like to see that video and also see the grave sometime.

Great book! There was an article a few years back about a person who found one of his bear traps.

Lugnut, Thanks for the reply. That's what I was afraid of and I'm not going to mess with putting it on YouTube. I haven't trapped up there for several years but hope to get back up trapping after my wife retires and I quit teaching. I do get up for Little Valley Convention.

Woodcock's grave is on the road going south across from North Hollow and the Coudersport Hospital. It is on the west side of the road back a street toward a small nursing home (I think). The cemetery is tucked behind a row of Norway Spruce (or at least evergreens) and the grave and marker are on the extreme west end of the cemetery.

Thanks for the info John. I'm heading up to my camp the first week of May to hunt spring gobbler. I'll have to see if I can find the grave site.
