Matt, I would like to reply to your previous post concerning the signs on the steese hwy. I am one of the names on those signs. First I would like to say that I dislike computers and am not a big poster, but I feel you deserve an answer. My father-in-law trapped alot of this area in the fifties and sixties. My partner's grandfather trapped this area in the early seventies and we have been trapping it for thirty years. We have cut alot of trail as well as used alot that was traditionally cut by our family. Do we trap it all at once? No. As many trappers do, we let trails rest to build back fur. Do we really trap from thirty mile to ninety mile? There are seven families that trap that area and without being redundant we only put our names on the signs. They all agreed to the signs and if you would like their names and phone numbers please pm me and I will provide them to you. You are welcome to call them. As this is becoming a high use area and we trap the river for wolves we felt the signs let other users be aware of what was good to ski with a dog and what was not. Over the years we have felt the signs were informative and if someone like yourself had a question or problem we have our phone numbers on them and you could have called us personally. We are not interested in taking anybody out trapping or teaching anybody to trap that we don't ask first. We are just like any other trapper nowdays, trying to hold on to what we have and catch fur. I imagine this post will go south as the last one as well but now you know the rest of the story.
