"Winter Hunt" is one of a series of images depicting mountain men / trappers and their mounts. This particular mountain man is dressed in fringed buckskins, wearing an animal hide cap, possibly fox, beaver, or coyote. He carries his hunting rifle at the ready, held out to the side for balance as he rides. His mount gallops through the snow, closing in on whatever game they pursue. The horse appears to be a bay mare with a white blaze, outfitted with a tanned hide blanket and a western saddle. The figure is rendered with careful attention to detail on a plain background, grounded by the shadow of the figure.
