Bear Hunting. Close Quarters
In this dramatic scene, a bear devours a hunter while his partner and his dogs try to kill the wild beast. Currier & Ives primarily produced hunting scenes that portrayed the successful sportsman, however, some images were created to sensationalize the hunt. Currier & Ives capitalized on tales of hunters who battled hand-to-claw or hand-to-horn with wild animals. In this print the bear is the victor.
