Corrected entry: When the two canoes first start off down the river, the guy in the lead canoe is wearing a hat. Virtually every time the shot changes, the hat either goes on or comes off, it happens about 5 times.

Correction: The shots are indicating time passage as they go down the river, as such, there would have been plenty of time to take the hat on or off between shots. It's just another indicator of the passage of time.

Corrected entry: When Jon Voight shoots the mountain man on top of the cliff with a bow and arrow, they are facing each other. When the mountain man falls dead, however, the arrow is in the back of his neck.

Correction: The arrow is not sticking into his neck, it has gone through his neck and is sticking OUT of his neck. The only thing silly is that he could not have walked over to Voigt, he would be holding his neck and screaming in pain.

Revealing mistake: When the mountain man is grinning at Jon Voight tied to the tree, you can see that his "missing" front tooth is actually painted black.
