    This print, along with X,3.412, is included twice by Bartsch in his catalogue: as part of the series which he calls 'Hunting Scenes II' and 'Hunting Scenes III'. It is numbered according to the numbering of 'Hunting Scenes III' while 'Hunting Scenes II' is not numbered at all, seeming to imply that it should not have been included in the latter series: this, however, is conjecture. The dating of both series is given as 1598 on the frontispiece or dedication sheet to the series.
