In the first pic is my great-great grandmother in her bearskin coat with a few bears hanging. On the left is her husband and on the right is her son, my great grandfather, Ray. Ray lived in the UP of Michigan and was the official state hunter/trapper for the area, as well as a game warden during the early 1900’s until the 1930’s

The second photo is of one of his bear traps and hangs in my Aunt’s garage in the UP. It is a Newhouse No. 5

Awesome photo's. Great to have those from the past.
Looks like a very successful hunt as well.


Needs to work on finger control, though.

Yeah it gets chilly. I was there last week and lows were in the upper 40’s to low 50’s. It was fantastic! That’s why they have the bearskin coats… roflmao

That’s awesome that you have the photos to go along. Great piece to keep around in the family. Hopefully Will can hang it on his wall one day!

Great old photos along with further info. Sometimes see old photos in diners and whatnot, but generally that's all you get, more flavor when thinking what those days must have been like when the photo is given context.

Great story to pass on Slayer
