Flyback Fridays - Bob Menzel 2011 - Trapping in the Old Days

Welcome to Flyback Fridays - a glimpse into Pemberton’s past!  This season we will bring you stories and videos from Tea & Tales and our video archives over the last decade that highlight Pioneer life and the resiliency of early settlers and First Nations.  We will also share videos and stories that show how local residents have responded to emergencies and challenges in the past, illustrating the power of community ties through all kinds of difficulties – yesterday and today.

This is an excerpt from Tea & Tales in 2011.  In this excerpt Bob Menzel, a local trapper, explains the difference between modern and old style traps and how they have evolved.  Bob also talks about traditional trapping territories.
