SOM#001, Laura Gardin Fraser, Hunter and Dog - Ruffed Grouse, 1930
Photo by John Birks

Numbers Issued: 3,235 bronze, 125 silver

From the Artist:

I chose the hunter with his dog because it presented the opportunity of telling a story embodying a human and animal element. It has been studied as to correctness of detail so that it should have an appeal to those who are interested ion out-of door life. The ruffed grouse forms the reverse. It may be considered as a national game bird and is distinct in character and very decorative.
