Shown here with a hunting rifle on his shoulder, William Charles John Hall (1857‒1920) was returning from hunting caribou. At the time, he was the superintendent of the Parc national des Laurentides. The caribou population was still large at the time, but just 15 years later, however, there would be not one left. A small herd has since been reintroduced, but nonetheless the current woodland caribou population is nothing of what it once was.
