A hunter gallops in the forest, accompanied by his running dog. The hunter holds his gun with his right arm so the barrel rests on his right shoulder.
In the background another hunter, on foot, holds his rifle in his right hand with the barrel resting on his right shoulder while he waves his hat with his left hand. He is directing the dog toward the prey.
The trunk of a large tree is behind the mounted hunter and the foreground is rich in forest plant growth.
A second tree and bushes are behind the hunter waving his hat.
