Arrow 'Emily The Trapper'

.

Bill Abercrombie and Emily Lamb


I've never participated in the AO Trapping Forum before (I'm not a trapper), but I thought I'd share this with you folks. This six page article made the front page of the Calgary Herald 'Swerve' magazine this week . . .



I thought the article was well written and made some very good points on trapping here in Alberta, but not being a trapper, I can't comment on the accuracy or validity of the article ... I'll leave that to you folks.

Cheers,

Mac

Bill is a good guy. I will read this article and see what it has to say. There sure is a lot of trapping in the news lately and I think it is good for us.

"...but her work ethic and foul mouth quickly endeared her..."

I must be getting old, can't grasp a foul mouth on a gal as "endearing".
