Charles Bullen Dunn (leaning on his hunting rifle) stands above a Maine whitetail buck on the shores of Ragged Lake sometime in the summer of 1887. Note the velvet on the deers fully developed antlers, indicating late summer. Unlike today, in the late 19th century a non-resident hunter could shoot game at any time of the year. Maine catered to non-resident hunters, hoping to boost tourism revenue.
