Do you suppose they were really hunting in suits? I wouldn't be surprised actually. Poor Wiley!
Nice '13 runabout.
I think that's my car !! Hunting in suits . . . well, maybe, but white shirts and ties ? Prolly not ? Any road, the photo op is a little hard to figure. The gents with rifles sure enough didn't go hunting with the driver of the runabout, unless the three of them liked being awful crowded, or someone rode the runningboard.
There are cities of coyotes on the river bottoms a half mile from our house, I've never had any trouble with them getting into our chickens or sheep - the neighbors' dogs, that's another story. Every now and then war is declared on the local coyote population, then the !@#@&**!! gophers run amuck for a while.
T'was the age.

Burger, Charlie was a brave young lad (photo 1), I think I hear the train coming (photo 2).
Cool pictures Burger of guys with a death wish!
Looks like that roadster has the sloped bill fenders.
Fellow on the right is holding a Remington Model 8 self-loader, sort of a modernist! A lot of places had a bounty on Mr. Coyote and most folks went about armed, kind of like carrying a wrench or screw driver in your car.
That reminds me. Janurary 11 I head to SW Iowa to call coyotes. Wiley is one of the toughest animals I have ever hunted. Much smarter than deer. Like Even said everyone carry a rifle in trucks and tractor.
