It's nice to be able to work on packed snow as you sub-divide your meat! No leaves, sticks or dirt in that meat!

About 100 but not all my finds, most are acquired from the local shed hunters.


MT the speedometer cable broke around 20 years ago, and I never bothered to fix it. Other than that not much else broke on it. Its a great machine. I have two and a 440 as well.

Thanks , I am on the other end of the village.
I heard them announce the dump was on fire, the hill usually catches fire every spring when they do that.

I climbed that hill on a D-7 once to put in a Fireline down the side of the hill to save the town when it was burning , but the smokejumpers landed and turned me back, thank God. I really didn't want to slide down it on that frozen ground.

This lake has a very large lake besides it that is a large wild rice shallow lake and the islands are the closest dry areas to camp on. Habitation from 7000 BP to present on these islands.
Very large collection of migrating ring necks and scaup in the fall feeding on the wild rice. These traps were probably hung up to use next fall collection. Small pox revaged this population in the 1860's After the gold rush in the Yukon this area was well hit at the turn of the century when this was collected

There is a trap here made like that but using all natural materials. They are bound with willow roots. My buddy had one made to hang on the wall. They were common around here not long ago.

Looked like this.

The lake this was found on has a very large population of ciscos Coregonus artedi which are a small whitefish 12-16 inches that spawn on the rock shoals just at ice formation in the Nov/Dec phase. That these traps would produce on the rock shoals when the fish spawn at that time

It probably worked pretty good for mink and muskrats as well.

We get the Berring Sea Cisco here. I keep a net for them all winter. One of the best eating fish here. 70 miles downriver on the coast, they get thick in the fall so a trap would be easy way to harvest them . Our nets sink immediately when set in late September.
Called Emukbinguks here. sp
