The Story of Trapper Jake, a True Outdoor Legend

Trapper Jake is a documentary of a real life American Legend.

Jake Korell was still out trapping at the age of 98.

A piece of Americana died on March 6, 2013. Jake Korell continues to live on in this incredible documentary by Kruit Productions. Trapper Jake narrates his own life story as we follow him onto his trapline to pick up his prized catches.

Born on April 22, 1914, Jake Korell witnessed, quite frankly, a lot of history being made. In the outdoor world he made the books himself by trapping over 90 years.

Trapper Jake was the real deal. He had faith in the mighty Lord above, and was a extremely hard working family man. Through tough times he kept his family fed by partnering with local farmers and ranchers to rid the area of pests by trapping.

He was not just a good trapper, he was legendary. Where all other trappers would fail, Trapper Jake would make the catches. He took care of his own harvest, put up his own fur, and sold locally to make more cash on his hard earned prime animal pelts.

Trapper Jake was a legendary mentor to many great trappers and continues to be an inspiration to outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen through this great documentary by Kruit Productions. Many of us have had  outdoor mentors that have passed on to the great beyond, and this documentary certainly brings them back into mind. I highly recommend this documentary and it can be purchased on Amazon.com. Learn from the very best and tag along with Trapper Jake.
