Bear and Deer Hunting with the U.S.F.S.

These next set of photos were taken in 1912 by my grandfather Arthur Watson. They show large tents stationed in Randolph, NH and the surrounding area for the purpose of hunting and doing U.S.F.S. survey work. Arthur Watson worked with the US Forest Service for a time and can be seen in the picture called “Survey Boys” - in the Tramping slide show.

Almost all of the pictures in this blog are taken from my grandmother’s photo album. I will try to remain true to her captions whenever possible, in identifying these and subsequent photos.

I would welcome any additional information about the material shown in this page. To respond, simply select the “Comment” link under the item of interest.
