SNational Geographic Society Painting by W. Langdon Kihn WITH HIS LAST ARROW, A HUNTER TAKES AIM AT THE MOOSE HE HAS TRAILED THROUGH THE SNOW Wearing snowshoes, the Penobscot Indian followed his wounded quarry through the forest until it became exhausted from wounds and from plowing through the heavy drifts. Now, with the moose bogged down, the hunter approaches close enough for the final shot. His bow isreinforced with an extra piece of wood, a device used to give added strength when first-class bow wood was not available. The Indians occupying the valley ofthe Penob scot River, in Maine, lived near the sea during the summer, but in winter they moved inland to hunt game.
