Moose Hunting in New Brunswick, Canada and fishing in Oregon, 1930's.

Two men walk out of a cabin in a forest and get into a canoe. They wear hunting boots and hats. One carries a gun and the other carries an axe. They sail down river and moor at the side of the bank. One hunter stands and blows through a horn (moose call). He points at a moose to his friend and the moose starts making his escape. They get off the boat and go over to a dead moose which they have presumably shot and shake hands. They carry the moose's head back to the boat.
