This has been reprinted and is/was available at the Vilas County Historical Museum in Sayner. In the June, 1942 issue of the Wisconsin Magazine of History the following "Book Note" appeared: "A History of Deefoot Lodge; memories of Happy Hunting" compiled by M. B. Rosenberry (Madison, 1941, 75 pp. multilighed), gives a brief description of a hunting lodge on Laura Lake in northern Wisconsin. As early as 1905 a group of men began to hunt deer together each fall in the Star Lake region, and in 1910 they purchased a property on Laura Lake which had been used as a saloon in lumbering days and which, among other structures, contained 'the snake house' where thoroughly intoxicated lumberjacks had been thrown. Deerfoot Lodge contined to function until 1935. The history of recreation in Wisconsin is of interest, and this lodge was a somewhat typical unit in the development. The flavor of the woods is caught in the little publication." [Reprint of this note filed with the original publication.]
