Unidentified hunter and his trophies


Unidentified hunter and his trophies


Black and white image of a man dressed in overalls and a work shirt, holding a rifle and standing in a room where a number of deer and one elk head and racks are mounted and displayed on the wall. The room is empty but for the displayed trophies, two wooden chairs, and a full gun cabinet in the left corner. Arranged on top of the gun cabinet are two canteens, a pair of binoculars, and an ammunition belt. Christmas decorations sit atop the heads of the two deer hanging on either side of the bull elk in the center of the display, a Christmas tree and what appears to be a wrapped gift with a tree on top. Museum records do not identify the man or the address of the home. This photo is part of the Herbert E. McMullen bequest. McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other images of daily life, people, and locations in Washington County and northwest Oregon. See WCMpic_014632 and WCMpic_014633 for other images of this house.
