TRAPPING IN QUEBEC AND ONTARIO
TRAPPING IN QUEBEC AND ONTARIO—In what part of Quebec and Ontario is the best trapping to be found and how far from the Canadian Pacific Railway? Is there better trapping in British Columbia than in Quebec and Ontario? Is the Frazer River country timbered? Is that part of the country opened tip by the Grand Trunk Pacific west of Edmonton, timbered, and is there good hunting and trap ping there?
To find good trapping in Quebec it will be necessary to go farther back from the railroad than in Ontario. Good territory may be reached by ascending some of the rivers; those emptying into Lake St. John are said to be good. In Ontario good territory will be found near the railway, almost anywhere be tween Sudbury and Nipigon. One should keep away from all stations where there are Hudson’s Bay stores or where there are Indians, unless one wishes to go far back for at such places there is very little game to be found near the railroad. I would not care to recommend any one particular place and the only way to find a satisfactory trapping ground is to go and look at some of it yourself.
There is no better trapping in British Columbia than in Quebec and Ontario but conditions are very different. British Columbia is a land of mountains and the trapping grounds are reached by pack trains whereas in the East the canoe is used.
The Frazer River Country is timbered except on the higher parts of the mountains. The entire route of the G. T. P. lies through a timbered country, from the place where it reaches the mountain ranges. If I am not mistaken, however, there is very little timber from Edmonton to the mountains. Very good trapping will be found in most parts of Northern British Columbia.
