Fitch Coulee Deer Hunt

Since November brings the great Wisconsin deer hunting season, I thought I’d share this photo that Bennie had tucked away in the family album – and which Carol shared with me. Even if our grandfather Emil was not a deer hunter (so far as I know), some of his sons and grandsons took up the sport with enthusiasm.

There are six fellows here happy to pose with their “trophies.” The only words recorded on the back side of the photo are “Fitch Coulee 1974.”

As she said, “Great hunters!” (Aunt Irene adds that she was the photographer for this photo.)
