Lynn Bogue Hunt
(American, 1878 -1960 )

Lynn Bogue Hunt was an American wildlife artist, and illustrator of magazines and books. From age 12 he lived in Albion, Michigan. He became a student at Albion College. From 1899 he was a staff artist at the Detroit Free Press.
He moved to New York City in 1903, where he was a freelance artist, providing illustrations for magazines, books and advertisements.
Books illustrated included books on waterfowl hunting, upland game bird hunting and saltwater fishing, which were also his own main interests. He illustrated several books published by the Derrydale Press, including Grouse Feathers and More Grouse Feathers by Burton Spiller, and his own book An Artist's Game Bag.
His last cover for Field and Stream appeared in 1951. Suffering from failing eyesight, he ceased painting in 1952 and retired to his home in Long Island. He died in Mineola in 1960, aged 82.
