At first mere "home hunts," "hoppused" the deer home on his shoulders. His sons were involved from the beginning in long hunts with commercial motives. Soon DB joined them. Deerskins 40 cents a pound in St. Louis; they didn't even have to be "grained," but could leave the hair on. Late summer 1801 DB began hunting in a serious way again. Best single hunt was Nathan's of 1802 along the Grand River, when he, with a kinsman, took 900 beaver skins. 1802 DB caught his hand in a beaver trap, and his camp robbed by Indians. 1803-05 crippled by rhumetism.
