George's story and pics about his great grandpa got me thinking that I need to document some of my families old hunting photos. This one's my favorite. Shows my uncles Jerry, Bernard, and Laddie with a bounty of cottontails shot back in the depression. Pic was taken in 1940 and the car, I believe, is a 1939 Ford Sedan. (If anyone can confirm I'd appreciate the help.) What is especially neat about this photo is that the long bows were all hand-hewn from Osage blanks by my grandpa. And the arrows were hand made from lumber store dowels. My uncles were all superb archers and would tell you that these bunnies were all shot on the run, because killing a sitting rabbit wasn't sporting. During the depression their ability to shoot a bow was often the difference between meat or not being on the dinner table.


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Quite a feat to shot them on the run. Rabbits are great table fare. cheers

Grand Pa always call the Jack Rabbits "Hover Hogs" . Said they also had to depend on living off the land at times during depression days.

Several skills represented there that are hard to find these days. Hand-hewn bows, pretty cool.
