OCTOBER IN THE UPLANDS

October 01, 1961

The shadows on a trail leading into grouse cover, the changing light of afternoon on a field of dry grass, the bright surface of a pond under storm clouds provide a backdrop of beauty for the hunter of upland game. On the following pages Artist Francis Golden records these and other moods of autumn in a portfolio of watercolors on an outdoorsman's October day.

Crouched low to avoid a tangle of briars, a grouse hunter searching for birds pushes into a grove of evergreens

A pheasant flushes and skims over scrub pines, providing a perfect shot as it heads away from the hunter

Bursting from the grass, four pheasants rise against the afternoon sky

A hunter and dog follow an old logging road through thick stands of timber

Tree-framed against the surface of a pond, the shooter hesitates as the dog goes on point
