Canning Ranch: 0050.0586


                Eneas Hogarth, Allan McBroom, Dr. Mittun, Jack Ellis and Charles West comprised a hunting party that made the trip in to Moose lake in the Sheep Creek district.  They were away five days and had a wonderfully interesting time camping and enjoying the scenery.  They were in quest of mountain sheep particularly, and report seeing a great quantity of game.  They brought home quite a fine elk head with a spread of 52 inches from tip to tip.  The animal took fright, plunged into the lake, and was drowned.  A raft was constructed and the elk was towed to shore.  They used pack horses to take in their supplies from the Canning ranch.
