An 1853 law banned out-of-state hunters from Maine, a prohibition that was lifted in 1870.

The Dunns traveled to the Ragged Lake area every year, spending a month or so camping, hunting, and fishing.

Hunting and fishing seasons overlapped and the Dunns recorded taking birds, deer, and a variety of fish during their August trips.
