Boys Life

See Boys' Life for August 1912, Page 31, for The Capture of Wyndygoul and at Page 12 for A Connecticut Deer Hunt.

Deer Tracks

Second from the left has a special "deer track makers" on his shoes, so the other boys can "hunt" for the deer. It's one of the games the boys can play. Saw it in the 1911 Boy Scout Manual.

It's a good thing

you made that clarification; "cloth. Stitched & stuffed". I thought that they might have just 'bagged' an Elks club statue. BPOE!

He Can't dance

The 2nd kid from the left can't dance because he has no sole.

Deer hunt

Isn't that a fake deer the boy is carrying? Looks like an inflatable deer.
