Sam Bennett in 1921, Sidnaw, upper penninsula of Michigan, a great place for outdoorsman who trap, hunt, and fish

from the

Sam is my great-great uncle, and I had no idea there was a photo of him, much less one in the internet that I would stumble across.

He was a trapper for the state of Michigan, which is confirmed by the 4 wolf furs and the front license plate on that car. (Mich dept of conservation 8)

Sam lost an arm, it may have been WW1, and was setting his traps with only one arm/one hand ... what a difficult thing that must have been to do, I've set traps too, they aren't easy, and they are really damn dangerous.
