    Looks like he already did and it wasn't easy: seven dead wolves and his right hand is chewed up. Another lefty. DEP would enjoy this one.

      Wyeth illustrated the 1942 Scribner & Son's complete set of Robert Louis Stevenson's works. My mom's grandmother gave her Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Child's Garden of Verses. The last two disappeared over the years but the copy of Treasure Island, though badly damaged by her flock of careless boys, is still at the family home in Montana. Some of those images were pretty scary for a little kid back in those times! Captain Billy Bones was the lead off illustration. Wyeth captured perfectly a bloodthirsty pirate captain on the run and watching his back. His image of Blind Pew who gave Bones the Black Spot actually gave me nightmares ... no kidding! Yesterday I picked up Stevenson's Kidnapped and David Balflour in perfect condition at a local book store thinking they must be reprints. Nope, the real thing. Too bad I tore the binding's cover image on Balflour trying to remove the gawdam price sticker. Great stories and great illustrations. Stevenson died way too young.

      Correction to my thread. Wyeth illustrated early 20th century publications. He died in 1945.

          Neither rain nor sleet, nor hail nor packs of wolves...

            Let's see if we can ID the rifles. From the ammo on the belt the top one appears to be a 45-70 lever action. Probably a Winchester Model 1886. Second image hunter is obviously using a Remington Model 8 ... hopefully 35 Remington. Any other calibre and he's in trouble! The bottom image is actually a bolt action. I found a clearer image from a 1926 Winchester calendar so that gives a few hints. It appears to be a Model 54 which was introduced the previous year. For this situation probably the best calibre of those offered would have been 30-06 (though .35 Whelen was available special order).

                Never paid attention to the artist. Art like that didn't appear in the magazines when I first stated reading them. But those old prints live on in Tim signs nowadays. When I see them I still get lost just thinking about what inspired those prints or who.

                  He was actually using and old H&R 9 shot .22 revolver.

                    Gary: The bottom picture does not appear to be moose hunters but rather loggers. Note the saw logs in the river and cant hook in the bowman's hands.

                      It was a revelation to me when I discovered who it was that had painted those illustrations that were in the books I grew up with. I was more familiar with the other Wyeth. I can't compare him to Russell or Remington as I like them all so much.

                          I don't know which is more unbelievable, him having time to reload, or killing 8 wolves with a .22. Lol

                            It seems today's wildlife artists' techniques for realism have almost exceeded reality. I'm guessing it has something to do with better materials to work with? My French Brittany is often fooled by the large DU drumming ruff grouse print hanging over the couch by Daniel Smith. It's been there longer than she has been alive and yet she still stares at often, expecting the bird to jump out.

                              I don't know who the artist was, but I always liked the sketches that came with the original Taps Tips column, and in issues before the mid-70s, Tapply's "Sportsman's Notes" page. I also like the Tom Hennessey sketches that are at the beginning of each chapter of the Gene Hill books.

                                Your correct Honk, they are loggers. The black bear shown above is facing the hunters.
