Hunting Bear at Maple Hurst Camp
Bear hunting was a way of life during this period of time, especially in the Maple Hurst Camp. Some of you might find these photographs offensive, if that’s the case I do apologize. Know that during this time in our history hunting wasn’t necessarily for fun but a way for you to survive. When they would hunt bear like these in the photographs below their meat was used for nourishment, to survive. Their pelts were used for warmth or for trade.
In case you are unable to see the year noted on the photographs. the bottom two have 1919 while the top is 1917. I’m not 100% sure if all of these were taken next to the building in the previous post. I can say that they were included in the makeshift photo album with Maple Hurst Camp noted.
