The Story of the Moravians V: Beasts Provided Danger and Sport

Record #:
The Moravians, among the first to settle in the western Piedmont, recorded their observations concerning the proliferation of game animals. Buffalo, black bear, wolves, and even panthers were observed, with elk and deer common throughout the area. Not accomplished hunters, the Moravians relied on the professional or \"long hunters\" of the frontier, while sharpening their own skills. Moravian records also reflect a consistent lack of game for hunting during the years 1752 through 1756.
