firearms traps and tools of the mountain men
« on: December 26, 2011, 05:07:29 PM »
Anyone have a copy of this that they could look in and find a bit of info for me? I can't seem to find a copy in my bookcases don't know what I did with mine. Lent it it probably. If I recall correctly, in the blacksmith section there is a picture of guy working at the anvil forging a bear trap. I just want to know what or who this picture refers to.

Tony,
Been a long time.  Good to see your post. 
On page 363 in chapter VII: "Irons in the Fire", The caption for Fig 100 reads; "Jedediah Smith's Blacksmiths Made a Bear Trap for Father Sanchez".
Hope this is what you were refering to.
