Successful hunting and trapping fall/winter season could bring in "a thousand dollars in modern currency" [??]. Costs: rifle worth 7 pounds and a hunter needed several. Gunsmithing tools to take along: hand vise, bellows, files, screw plates. Powder was expensive. DB learned to make it himself. Lead hard to transport. Traps and horses cost money. Risk of robbery by Indians. "There is no doubt that Daniel Boone sometimes made large sums by hunting and trapping, but sometimes, too, he came back from the woods stripped of everything he owned. It is easy to see why he was so often plagued by debt. Equipment had to be renewed or he could not hunt." (BAKELESS:40) HUNTING
