image thumbnail Starting out for caribou, Beaver City, Alaska Title taken from caption. "11502 -- (12) The interior of Alaska is generally well-timbered, and there are large tracts of good grazing country. In these conditions we are not surprised to find considerable large game. There are several varieties of bear, moose, caribou, wolves, and many fur-bearing animals; and, in certain portions the silver and black fox abound more plentiful than in any other country in the world.The caribou, which is a species of reindeer, are found in Northern Alaska, where they rove in immense herds from the Arctic Ocean to the valley of the Yukon, and in some localities range a considerable distance south of that stream. In this view we have a representation of a party of prospectors encased in their Arctic attire, with sleds loaded, ready to start on a ten days' hunt for caribou.Hunting the caribou is a rare sport, and whenever a large herd is encountered, the hunters are usually able to bring down a half-dozen or more with their unerring rifles, and thus provide their camps with an abundant supply of choice fresh meat.The hunters travel on snowshoes whenever the beaten paths are abandoned.""John P. Clum, U.S.P.O. Inspector and Lecturer"Copyright, 1900, by B. L. Singley Stereographic Library Collection, ca. 1800-1910;
