Vintage “Palmetto Jumper” Hunting Vehicle

The Florida “palmetto jumper,” a combination dog-lunch-shooter wagon for use on the wide palmetto barrens. Two shooters ride on top while the dogs range ahead. When the dogs point the wagon halts about a hundred yards from the point and the shooters move up on foot.
