Trappers Cabin

In October, trappers journey into the bush to set their line of quick-kill traps, a more humane way of trapping that the territory adopted in the mid-1990s. Come December, they collect their bounty and return to Colville Lake to prepare the fur for auction. The furs are inspected, and each trapper is paid an advance per pelt — they receive more money after the auctions, which are held in January, February, May and June.
