Vintage Hunting Photos (Good Old Days)

Recommended Posts

Love looking at vintage hunting photos and art, some hard looking folks back in the good old days and many depended on hunting so they could eat. An old timer that grew up in the depression  days said "He knew things were getting better as he was starting to see rabbits and other small game crossing the roads without a dog and hunter following in close pursuit.

Look at that last photo, with the oil lantern, it just gives you this indescribable feeling...I have a couple lanterns in my home, we burn on the weekends.  It is just REAL, getting back to how life should be.

I like old advertising and the work of the old outdoor artists especially Philip Goodwin.

Too cool.   I've got some B&W photos of my dad, uncle's, and brother in the late '50's early '60's. I'd love to post them, bi  there in storage at the moment. Trying to sell our current house and purchase another, but so far 3 buyers for our current home have had to back out because the bank won't untimely give them a mortgage.

Thanks for sharing, Al...Obviously Coyote Jack didn't have a TV in the cabin to watch on those cold winter nights...Hehehe..

I like the grouse hunter...The shotgun looks just like one that my Dad bought for $10 back in the late 1930s...

It is an Ithaca, made in 1899..It has  " NEW ITHACA GUN"  inscribed on the receiver...I still have it..

This is me at 13.  Yea, the one on the LEFT.  1974 and the first "bunny".  You can also see I was huge Sabres fan too........

It took a number of years before my good looks kicked in. :)

In the third pic, either the bucks we're a lot bigger bodies back then, or the men were smaller.  Or both...

The dude with the two grey foxes around his neck has what looks like a Winchester m1887 lever action shotgun...

It could also be a M1901, which was basically the same gun, except beefed up to handle smokeless loads...

I remember when Ed hart's Gun Shop was in Cohocton back in the 1960s..He had two of those Win lever shotguns on his rack , a 12 gauge and a 10 gauge..I can't remember what the price was, probably some exorbitant amount like $50...

Even my recurve looks super high tech by comparison.
