An elderly country magistrate sits in his chair, one foot on a stool, he leans back looking at a group who have entered his offices. The man standing before him is holding a brace of pheasants in his hand, he points towards the magistrate. Behind him two poachers have been ushered in, looking very forlorn. On the wall are two hunting pictures, a dog stands in the foreground.
