There is also something off to the left, possibly another animal. The ground they are standing on appears to be bare and, in the background there is a house made of brick with a porch. To the left, there is a tree and a fence as well as some other indistinguishable objects behind the hunters. An accompanying note reads: "l to r - Gus Bogel, Graves Bogel, Sauceda ranch-house."
