The view is from behind a man standing in a wheat field in the late evening sun. He has a rifle raised to his eye and the strap from the rifle hangs in front of him. He is wearing yellow leather cowhide gloves, a dark brown cowboy hat, a tan coloured carhartt jacket and dark denim jeans. To the left in the distance is a forest in dark shade. To his immediate right are a set of moose antlers propped up in the field beside him.
