I have one just like that made from blue poly line (wife found it at a store on the Cape) and its great. I like yours better-looks like it would absorb some water off your shoes. Looks great.
The baskets are pretty neat, they make a bunch of sizes, little smaller than a clothes basket. You could make some pack baskets ,and when they get run over by the snow machine they don't splinter. Those mats would be good made out of some old sunrotted poly on the bare feet.
With leg holds? Yotes.
We don't fur trap anymore. Family did from the 40s until a few years back. Rats are pretty much MIA around here these days. I think the last ones we trapped were 15-20 years ago! Fisher have come south in recent years. Not enough money in furs anynmore let alone mostly coon to make it worth while. Its all nuisance work but Im still clawing out a piece of the pie.
Unlike the rest of the guys in the area I actually know how to hunt and trap. Not to mention we are 24/7 including holidays so I do ok.
Laura has a nice steady job with full benefits so that helps a lot!
Steve, part of that may be when you're " out in the backcountry" in AK you wouldn't be crossing any roads or hearing and civilization within a few minutes. You really are alone !!.
That is some amazing country there. Wow- that you in the pic? Looks like a great time.
