Here are some old photo's taken in the 1880's of this and surrounding area. Thought some of you might enjoy them.
Great pictures, Jinglebob. Thanks for sharing the link. Number 23 with the deer in front of the tent, and the singalong for "happy hour" is quite unique. Then numbers 55 and 56, roping a buffalo and roping a wolf, are great photos. That would take quite a bit of speed and talent to accomplish either of those tasks.
From what I read, they would catch a wolf at a kill and chase him while he was full, then wouldn't run so far or fast, and of course, relay him. Grampa and a cousin ran one until he went in a waterhole, then they killed him . I never heard how they killed him. Ammo was expensive.
Dad always told about running a coyote down when he was a kid, on his Indian pony. Finally the coyote got winded and ran under a sand stone sticking out from a hill. Dad couldn't find anything to kill him with, so took his bridle off and used it to club him to death. I asked if he wasn't worried about his horse leaving him. He just smiled and said, "He wasn't going anywhere." No, I suppose he wasn't!
