Default Waybay South Dakota Oct. 22nd 1888

I picked up a couple of vintage duck hunting photos, and was able to identify a couple of Parkers one being a hammerless, must have been one of the first made. Craig

Boy, that looks like fun. I hardly ever see hunters anymore "roughing it". The smell of wood smoke, jokes told, good food over a fire, friends and some amber liquid....... memories I would like to have had.

Nice picture!!

The dog appears to be an American Water Spaniel. The bottom picture the gentleman 2nd from the left appears to have a Parker with a gold grip cap????

I noticed that too Craig and the fellow to his left may also have one.

Craig, what do you think that the fellow in the second picture top row right is holding. I tried to enlarge the image and it kind of looks like a very short barreled small bore double?
Is the photo too early for a .44XL or 40-85 ?

IMHO - its a 10 or 12 single barrel with a slight reflection, if you look at the shadow under his hat bill and the sunlight on the the other barrels and actions in the pictures, the shading on a couple faces and sides of legs, as well as the faint shadow of the branches on the tent (especially in the first picture) - I think the sun was above and to the left of the photographer, just right to reflect back at the lens


they are both great pictures, nice find
