Notes:

A hunting party, with men shooting at birds and perhaps animals using crossbows and rifles, and with hunting dogs to retrieve the things they killed. I somehow doubt that these are people who need to kill in this way in order to eat.

In the background there’s a church tower; the scene is one of rural England.

I have marked the engraving as being by Josiah Wood Whymper, who also signed himself Whimper.
