Here's one I saw recently, "Early Bounty Hunters of Butler County, Pennsylvania" published in 1934. I was hoping to find some of my PA relatives here, but no luck! I suppose it's not too surprising that Pennsylvania would have some wild animal problems; especially in 1811 when the list of bounties starts in this book. The introduction is priceless:
"The colorful romance of the bounty-hunger who combined the thrill of the chase with commercial enterprise in exterminating our Carnivora, has been told and retold elsewhere [I'll have to look that book up!]. Ours is merely the task of compiling available statistics, which give weight to the story. The bounty animals referred to in the complications are Mountain Lions, Bobcats, Wolves, and Foxes."
Mountain Lions and wolves were the big bounty, worth $8 each! Wolf pups were only $3. Bobcats offered $1 and foxes .50. Next comes a long list of names ordered by the date of warrant or bounty - which makes it difficult to find your relative as you'd have to read through the WHOLE BOOK. But if you did find an ancestor here you would know exactly how many wolves, pups, foxes, etc. they had killed and how much they got for it. For example, in May of 1811 David Cristy and John Barnhart both killed 6 wolf pups! A whopping $18 went a long way in 1811. Good job boys!
