Hislop and Nagle's post, now Fort Rae, 1890. When I was living in Fort Rae 1902-3, the caribou were along the shore west of the channel in thousands. There were only 4-5 men in the Post. You could hear them shooting. Later, they came with caribou on toboggans to the post. Unloading the fresh meat and returning. The thing that always stayed in my mind was when they dumped the meat out - the blood ran on to the snow. I don't know how many caribou were killed but the whole channel west near the other shore was black with animals, it seemed miles long.

The image was copied from a composite photograph of the members of the 2nd Legislative Assembly for the Northwest Territories, 1891 (Saskatchewan Archives number R-B1490).
