Additional Details

A comedic scene unfolds as the sportsman's pair of dogs take chase after the elusive rabbit bounding toward the right of the panel; the skinny-legged hunter's attention (and his rifle) obliviously lean in the opposite direction. Drawn in the manner of a late nineteenth century sporting print by I. Killem and "published" by W.E. Skinnem.
