250 - The Mad Trapper Of Rat River

Our 250th episode is all about the Mad Trapper Of Rat River. When Canadian authorities paid a visit to a remote log cabin, they didn't expect the man inside to shoot at them through door and then lead them on one of the longest and most grueling manhunts in history.
