Parental Advisory Parental Advisory Parental Advisory

This photo should serve as a constant reminder to us all about the inherent risks of hunting.

We may never know what happened to this hunter, did a bear claim his moose kill? Was the moose wounded and put up a fight? Part of the story is told by a rifle with a jammed cartridge and a knife who’s blade was broken off at the handle found amongst the bones... whatever the case, he fought, to the very end.

Is that photoshopped? It looks like "sucker" is written below the antlers.

It looks like “Salmer” or “Sabre”. It’s pretty hard to identify a well done photoshopped pic these days, so if it is, they did a damn fine job mate.

Someone must have colourised the photo, as it's from 1923:

The backcountry can be beautiful yet brutal, as this poor soul found out in 1923...

Full story below. This article originally ran in the July 16, 1923 edition of the Daily Inter Lake from Kalispell, Montana. Article sourced from archives at Newspaper.com

Mute evidence of a tragedy of the woods was discovered a few days ago by Joe McKelvey, park ranger, in the vicinity of Many Glaciers chalet, Glacier National Park.

In a thicket about three miles north, Mr. McKelvey ran across the skeleton of a moose, and upon closer investigation, found parts of a human skeleton, which clearly showed that some hunter years ago had shot and wounded a moose and then been killed by the animal. Close by was found a Springfield 45-70 rifle with the breech open, and a shell which had stuck told how the hunter had lost his life. He had evidently fought to a finish for a broken knife (that) was found on the ground.

Old-timers in the vicinity of the park are of the opinion the skeleton is that of a French-Canadian trapper who disappeared about 18 years ago, but none remember his name. There is no doubt that the man lost his life a long time ago, for the bones are bleached and the rubber shoes which the hunter was wearing are badly weather-worn.

Mr. McKelvey got an excellent photograph of this tragedy of the hills. It shows the two skeletons where the combatants fell after (they finished) their fight, together with the rifle and other equipment of the hunter.
