This amazing 1936 photo features a group of avid hunters from Ponoka and districts displaying the trophy head of a huge moose and the many fox and coyote pelts that they acquired during their annual fall excursion into the wilds of Alberta. The well dressed gentlemen shown in the back row from left to right are: Messrs. R. Alexander, Bird Headley and O. Humble and then seated in front is W. Smiton, Whitecotton and Dr. O. Cook.
