Walter Arnold, Maine Trapper by Jeremiah Wood


Relive a bit of trapping history with stories from Maine legend Walter Arnold. For decades, Arnold spent his winters pursuing valuable furbearers out of remote cabins in Maine’s north woods. Later in life, he gained great notoriety as one of the last mountain men, living alone in a remote cabin only accessible by plane. More than 300 pages of wilderness adventures, furbearer observations and trapping methods, tips and tricks. Includes dozens of vintage photographs and added perspective from a modern day trapper. You can purchase a copy of “Walter Arnold, Maine Trapper” on, or by sending Jeremiah Wood  a check for $22.00 (postpaid) at 408 Goding Rd., Ashland, ME 04732.
