Frost depicting 2 North Woods hunters and their dead bear with 1 hunter standing and the other sitting on a log with both their rifles leaning on the log. Left center of the board has the image of a flying Mallard Drake and right-center a Bull Moose head. On reverse side is a Winchester label asking owner to display it in a prominent spot. Paper backing is marked with serial number 635. CONDITION: Very good overall. Board is completely intact with all the original cartridges in place.
