Ok, how cool was this? The Clearwater Division of Idaho Fish and Game (IDFG) came out to teach our combat-injured Veterans about trapping and the history of trapping. They let them set some traps and taught a few techniques. They also explained some heritage about the Mountain Man life. Check out our pics!
