With Gun and Rod in Canada [Kindle Edition]

Phil H. Moore (Author)

On February 9, 1901, Captain Barrett, of the Western Arms and Sporting Goods Company in Salt Lake City, Utah, presented me to a young mining engineer. The following spring I accompanied him on a prospecting trip in the Wahsatch Range and killed a cinnamon bear. Then he took me on a coaching tour through the mountains of Idaho. I furnished the meat for our party. On returning, my owner, with a partner and pack-outfit, travelled through Strawberry Pass into Ashley Valley. We killed coyotes, sage-hens, and an elk. From Ashley to Price (125 miles through the Bad Lands) I shot a vulture; also, “chance shot” a buck antelope 1,000 yards. At Price we railed to Salt Lake.
