"Tukedeka Hunter"

7" x 5" Gouache on Illustration Board

The Tukedeka Shoshone (Sheepeaters) were an old time Shoshoni stock that were isolated in very mountainous regions of the West, including Central Idaho. Because of the rugged nature of their home territory, historically few, if any, owned or used horses. This young hunter has bagged some Geese that inhabit the area for most of the spring, summer and into fall along the Salmon River and many local lakes and wetlands.  While named for their diet of big game, like most folks, they ate whatever meat that was available and goose is a real tasty choice.
