Many hunting scenes that Currier & Ives printed were the designs of Arthur Tait and Frances Palmer. In "Wild Duck Shooting. A Good Day's Sport.," a hunter, watched by his dog, stands in a boat loading his gun. His companion sits beside him on the edge of the boat, taking a duck from the mouth of the second dog. This example has weathered the test of time, boasting fantastic color and paper quality, and would make a wonderful addition to the collection of any gamesman or collector with an apprecation of the outdoors.
