“A Proud Moment”

“Snapshot Saturday”

A traditional woodsman with a fine buck.

Traditional woodsman, Jeff Wacker, with a fine white-tailed buck taken with an outstanding shot from his French “D” flintlock smoothbore. Being of German lineage, Wacker reverently placed an evergreen bough in the buck’s mouth as a last meal, marked his own cheek with an oak sprig dipped in the buck’s blood, then placed the sprig in his voyageurs cap. Bottomlands of the River Raisin in the Old Northwest Territory.
