Often overlaps with ThePioneer; can turn into the MountainMan if he decides to stay outside civilization permanently. May also qualify as a type of IntrepidMerchant, especially if he puts himself at high risk to gather pelts from dangerous animals because of the even higher chance of profit. Contrast the EvilPoacher; compare and contrast the RoguishPoacher. Compare to GreatWhiteHunter, who may well have the HunterTrapper background.
