MUSKRAT TRAPPING, BEST PLACE — Is the Great Slave Lake and vicinity a good muskrat section?
The best muskrat trapping in the world is at Great Slave Lake, being brought out by the thousands by Indians who use the .22 long and cause; but as the timber line is south of there you must put in the winter on the tundra a la Eskimo and would advise no white man to try it for fun. There are two Hudson Bay Posts on the Lake but supplies are very high and it is a hard trip. In regard to maps, you cannot get a trail map or road map of any account as lakes even in this country are sometimes fifty miles away from where they ought to be. I have been up the Peace and Athabasca, etc., and know.
