"Camp Meat" is another of the Artist's successful portrayals of the "It Should Have Happened This Way" or an authentic glimpse into a moment of our Western History.

The stalking horse was a method used by the free trapper when seeking one of the necessities of life. By utilizing the cover provided by the horse, he was able to work in close to his quarry and since the quarry did not count legs and note there were six rather than the customary four, our hunter was often successful. Our subject did not kill the animals for sport but only to survive. He lived by the simplest of rules but under the most difficult conditions. This painting is in celebration of a time that was rigorous under the best circumstances.
