This is not a weak facsimile, each spring compresses at 500 lbs. The pan reads HBC #6, American Fur and Trade Co. The pan is so large it looks like a small fry pan.
Antique Bear Trap
A commonly mooted point among
hunters of big game in the West is
whether the early hunters and trappers
after the grizzly bear did not exaggerate
Old Ephraim’s ferocious ways, his terrifying
aspect, and his extraordinary endurance,
or whether the Grizzly Bear Mounts
is a degenerate scion of a powerful sire.
All hunters after western big game agree
theer is a wide difference in temper, stature
and ferocity between Old Ephraim
as hunted to-day and the grizzled old fellow
that used to appear in thrilling Western
fiction, and of which Kit Carson, Jim
Bridges, and other plainsmen told so thrillingly
in other days. Some philosophic
souls argue that early hunters had reason
for magnifying the terrors of following
after Old Ephraim. He was the biggest,
fiercest, and ugliest beast they had ever
tried conclusions with, and armed only
with their crude weapons it was indeed a
mortal risk to rouse his ire. The first palefaced
hunters who encountered grizzly
bears were in the Lewis and Clark expedition
up the Missouri River and across the
unexplored region to the Columbia River!
