Typical Southern Quail and Turkey
Hunts to be Depicted at
N INCIDENT of the
:, week past which aroused
; general interest among
the Villagers, was the
visit of officers of the
New England Forest,
Fish and Game Association and repre
sentatives of the American Biograph
Company of New York, who spent some
days here securing material for a series
of moving hunting pictures which will
be shown at the coming Boston Sports
men's Show, which opens at Christmas
These pictures, depicting hunting, fish
ing and other spoilsmen's pleasures, are
to be made a new and novel feature of
this year's show, and this locality was
selected by the officers of the association,
as the place best suited to secure a typi
cal Southern quail hunt. The results of
the selection were most satisfactory,
everything combining happily, and sev
eral other excellent subjects being secured
in addition to the films especially desired.
The quail hunt pictures are particular
ly elaborate, carrying the onlooker
through a day's hunt almost as thorough
ly as if he were in the field. The series
will show the arrival of the sportsmen at
their hotel, bag and baggage ; their de
parture for the field, with a stop at the
kennels where the dogs are taken on, and
the fording of a picturesque stream, (Me
Kenzie's,) en route ; the arrival at the
hunting grounds, the releasing of the
dogs and the departure of the hunters ;
the work of the dogs on a hot scent and
the point ; the shooting of the birds, and
ending, with a retrieving scene. It is be
lieved that this final picture, in which a
beautiful setter walks straight out to
wards the onlooker with a quail in its
mouth, is the finest thing of the kind
Another picture secured here which
the biograph people say will have a big
run throughout the country after it has
been shown at the show, is a Southern
turkey hunt in which a typical Southern
turkey hunter and a real wild turkey
were the models; "Turkey" Elliott, a
well-known local character, being the
The picture opens by showing Elliott
as he comes from his lonely cabin, scans
the sky for an estimate of the weather,
loads his old muzzle-loader and make for
the swamp. He is next seen behind a
"blind" calling and peering about eager
ly for the approach of game, and the pic
ture ends with a monster gobbler walk
ing into a little clearing, being bowled
over and carried off by the happy hunter.
It so happened that a large wild gobbler
was captured alive during the week, and
sportsman who stalks on unsuspecting
buck, and the timid approach of a doe
whose uncontrollable curiosity impelled
her to walk straight towards the camera.
Among the other pictures which have
already been secured and which will be
shown in connection with the Pinehurst
pictures at the sportsmen's show, are
a real moose hunt in New Brunswick,
in which a monster bull moose is
called in and shot ; a trout fishing scene

at the Eangeleys, and a salmon fish

fidently expected that these pictures will
be the sensation of a show which will,
without question, be the most interest
ing ever given. It is felt that they will
depict shooting and fishing scenes as they
have never before been shown, and they
are sure to interest all who have a love
for out of doors and the sport it offers,
because of this.
the turkey hunt was suggested by this
incident. It was the original intention
to have the turkey tied, but the big bird
got away, made for the swamp, and was
actually called back by Elliott's clever
mimicry of the love call of the hen tur
key, so that the picture is, to all intents
and purposes, a real turkey hunt; the
first of its kind ever secured.
Other pictures secured here were the
"shooting" of a deer with a camera by a
