The mild frontier

"The new Netflix series 'Frontier' portrays the 18th century fur trade as extremely violent and competitive. Was it really as brutal as the show depicts?"

My overall question is this: How violent was the fur trade in the 18th century? Did competitors resort really resort to violence and killing? If so, did colonial or European governments try to intervene? What about the natives?
