Anyone recognise him?

Does anyone know who this is please? He was a guest of SS-Obergruppenführer Friedrich Karl Freiherr von Eberstein on a hunting party in Bavaria. I have included the handwritten dedication on the reverse of the photo.

In ewiger (?) / ehrlicher (?) Kameradschaft
Salzburg, 6.6. 44 H. Hinrichs
If he was a "Hinrichs", the surname is very common in northern Germany.
Could be translated as "Heinrich's son", or in Low German as "Hinnerk", another short form of Heinrich / Hinrich.

Hard to read, but I always rely on my first impression.

Typical South German / Bavarian , or even Austrian hunting clothes, unfortunately, I can not contribute more...
On his left shoulder the barrel of a hunting rifle, not a shotgun, one was stalking a buck, a chamois, but not feathered game.
