Say, yourr antenna don't pick up all the channels do it? Well, I tell you what. Here's a key to that door behind me. There's all kinds of rats back there - even one big one s'posedly. You go through there and kill all the dang rats you can eat. How's that?

— Slim to a low Intelligence character

Slim Picket is a trapper and also the head of Klamath's Trapper Town in 2241.


Slim Picket is the tall and lanky[1] head of the Trappers in Klamath. Lately, he has noticed that the rats around the western part of town have been acting strangely and thinks something is controlling them.

Behind the scenesEdit

Slim Picket is possibly a reference to the actor Slim Pickens best known for his role in the movie Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb as B-52 pilot Major T. J. "King" Kong who rides a dropped H-bomb to a certain death, as if the bomb were a rodeo bronco and waving his cowboy hat. The bomb explodes triggering the end of the world.


  • Although his Outdoorsman training session is supposed to cost the Chosen One 100 (or 50) dollars, due to incorrect scripting, the Chosen One will instead receive the money. [verified]
    • In the unpatched game, money would be neither paid nor received.[verified]
