West Shore of Hudson Bay-What kind of game and furbearing animals are found around Big Lake near the western shore of Hudson Bay? How many and what size of traps would two men need in that country? Is the country settled? What is the best way to go? What food and outfit would be necessary?
I cannot locate Big Lake, but all maps are different, as that country has never been fully explored, and the various map makers give different names to the lakes and put them in various positions-to make it look artistic, I presume. If the lake is near the west shore of Hudson Bay, the surrounding country is certainly not thickly settled, for all of that country is a howling wilderness, and there are no inhabitants except a few Indians and half-bred trappers, with the few white men who run the trading posts. None but old and experienced bushmen, with sufficient money, no friends or relatives and no love for civilization or comfort, should ever think of going there. It would be almost impossible for an ordinary man to go there, and even if he could, if inexperienced in bush life, it is doubtful whether he would ever return.
