How to Hunt and Trap

Excerpt from How to Hunt and Trap: Together With Chapters Upon Outfits, Guns Etc;, Abounding in Information Generally for Sportsmen To Make record of my experience in form of a book, was a thing I had not thought of when I first went, heart and soul, into hunting and trapping; but friends have urged me to give my experience, and the pleasure in so doing will compensate, if nothing else results. My boyhood was spent in Massachusetts, in the valley of the old Connecticut, where for many years my shotgun made havoc among the small game, and my traps cleared many streams of muskrats and mink. Later, I hunted West, and at last found a camp home in the glorious Rocky Mountains, whose wild scenery and abundant game made me forget for a time that civilization had any claim upon me. Trappers and miners, Indians and half-breeds, have all been my fellow-comrades, and in "roughing it" with each I have lived and gloried in all the varied experiences of a hunter's and trapper's life. Preface To The New Edition. The reception accorded to "How to Hunt and Trap," by scientists, sportsmen, and the public generally, has been most gratifying to the author. The first copy of the book appeared in 1878. During the three years which have intervened, several thousands have been printed and sold by my publishers. The success attending the work has led me to revise the volume, and add new illustrations and some practical observations regarding "chokeboring" and game regions.
