Great photos.

The scenery looks similar to the area where I live, the foothills of California's Sierra Nevada.

That's a dandy Stutzen in photo #6. With the location of the bolt handle, it looks rather like a Mannlicher Schoenauer.

The vehicle in #4 looks as if it could have been built from (or copied from) a T Ford.

I wonder if they killed that polar bear with that grease gun. Or did they just torpedo it.

More interesting photos. I like all three of them.

The large red stag. The line up of antlers. And mostly the bear and masses of hunters, all with their double shotguns, I presume, and some singles.

wrong question, the bear was shot because he was smoking!
was a strict non smoking area, he was warned before twice - no third warning

Obviously, this is the aftermath of an execution. Normally, the condemned prisoner is allowed a smoke before being shot by a firing squad. He must have been brave, since there is no blindfold present.

Very funny.

BTW while all you crazu NE members are talking about cigars, I decided to blow the photo up.

Is the 'cigar' the bear's tongue? Or some sort of 'last meal rite' like the last turnip? Or is it the bear's truly last Habano smoke?

Seems to be the same man:



Col. August Von Spiess (August 6, 1864 – 1953), formally known as Oberst August Roland von Braccioforte zum Portner und Höflein, was an officer, writer, famous hunter and Hunting Master for the Romanian royal court.
Von Spiess was born in Austria and became a Romanian citizen after the Union of Transylvania with Romania, following the dissolution of Austria-Hungary.
In 1875, at 11 years old, he entered the military school of Sankt Pölten, after which he joined the Theresian Military Academy of Wiener Neustadt, Vienna. After 10 years of military studies, in August 1885 he became a lieutenant in the Transylvanian 64th Infantry stationed in the Alba Iulia area. In May 1889 he advanced to the rank of Major and settled in Sibiu, where he acted as drill officer. In 1893 he became a professor at the Military Infantry Cadet School of Sibiu; in 1911 he was named commander of the school. In February 1915, he advanced to the rank of Colonel and took command of the 2nd Regiment Infantry in Sibiu.
Von Spiess finished his military career after the end of World War I, and was appointed by King Ferdinand I of Romania as Director of the Royal Hunts from 1 July 1921. He kept this function until 1939. Simultaneously, he was a member of the Commission for Protection of Nature and National Parks, alongside honorary memberships of many domestic and foreign societies and associations with similar interests.
In 1926, Von Spiess and his daughter initiated a project to tag the birds of Snake Island, Romania. He led two hunting expeditions in equatorial Africa, in Kenya in 1936 and in Tanganika in 1938. He was a fine observer of nature, a connoisseur of game habits and a keen hunter, and gathered during his life a collection of over 1,000 hunting trophies. He also wrote a number of books pertaining to animals and hunting, mostly tied to the Carpathian Mountains region.
