Otto Haynes and his Cougars Kills (1915)

Otto Haynes (Anne Haynes‘ husband) stands here in 1915 with his two cougar kills and his faithful hunting companion Potlatch at his feet.

Bob Walter says Potlatch would tree them and then Otto would shoot. In fact, I think he’s holding the pistol that took these two down.

Otto was a fire warden for a time and he and his sons Elwin and Arndon ran the Haynes Shake Mill outside Eatonville from 1934 through at least mid 50s.
