Big Game Fills the Northern Plains. Sled Dogs Sniff the Air, Whine with Eagerness, and Strain atHarness No need for a whip has the hunter. His dogs, pursuing the herd, stop only when he tosses out the sled's antler anchor. Here they pause while hetakes ashot. With the rifle's crack, dogs resume the chase, and the hunter must fling himself on his sled if he is not to be left. Caribou range these Northern Plains bythe hundreds ofthou sands. When rivers are open, they are trapped and speared by canoemen.
