Veteran Pennsylvania fur buyer was a legend and a mentor

Nick Wyshinski, a well-known lure maker and fur buyer for decades in Pennsylvania, passed away April 22 at the age of 93. Wyshinski operated Briar Creek Trapper’s Supply in Berwick for nearly 50 years, buying pelts and formulating his own lures for trappers. (Photo courtesy PA Trappers Association)
