Do you know this person?

Hello All,

If you like a little challenge, then here it is!

I found this photo in our 1968 Overlander which we recently purchased in July. The picture was among some paperwork that had been with the trailer for some time. I though it might be fun to search for this person (maybe a PO) and find out some history on our Airstream and where its been. Hope you can help.

Would that be Bullwinkle after the failure of the movie "The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle"???

It's neither a Bullwinkle or a Rudolph....it's an Elk

Its a caribou, which in some parts of the world is domesticated and also called a Raindeer. Sorry not a moose or elk.....

Tikiman,

Being the ever "Doubting Stingray", I checked the net...you're absolutely right. That said, according to what I read, Caribou are only found in Alaska, if the picture was taken in the U.S., so maybe your trailer has traveled the AlCan Highway?

The photo is of Molly Hunter of Fargo, ND. It was taken during a caribou hunt in North Dakota and was televised in a July 1966 edition of the tv show "Wild Kingdom", in which Marlon Perkins claimed to have felled the caribou with a tranquilizer dart. This particular episode became somewhat controversial when it was alleged that Marlon later tranquilized Molly and dragged her to his tent.
The episode drew much public anger but Marlon firmly insisted that no animals were harmed during the filming. Molly had no comment other than "what a beast"!

I don't get it.

The hunters don't shoot the dopey deer who ran into my white tow vehicle
while it was standing still.

They don't shoot the pain in the neck deer that ate my bushes.

And it would have been easy to hit the drunken deer that ate the fermented
apples off the ground.

But they wack Rudolph????????????????????

P.S. Is that what they mean by " Nice rack "?

The elk (caribou) was stunned into total silence by the tranquilizer dart, much as you might be stunned into silence when the wife asks "does this dress make me look fat?".
I stand by my carefully researched answer unless/until I am proven wrong.
