 To be a trapper is to traverse the tracks and trails of Mother Earth.

To walk on land no man has stood.

To see in ways that no one could.

To be a trapper is to revere what nature's bounty gives each year.

To know the woods by instincts true,

of every rock and hill and slough.

To see the forest between the trees, 

to understand what so few see.

To be a trapper is to be free!
