A thread for old-timey photos....

Postby Everyday Hunter » Thu Dec 13, 2012 9:53 pm

Everyone likes old-timey hunting photos, so let's post some of our photos from the old days -- either ourselves or our fathers, uncles, etc. I'll start:

Here are a couple -- the first is 1958 (Sorry it's not bigger):

Then, one is from 1973:

In spring 2013, that will be 40 years ago. I'm going to try to take a gobbler this year with that same double barrel.

I have a couple more old-timey pictures, but they're not scanned.

When the Everyday Hunter isn't hunting, he's thinking about hunting, talking about hunting, dreaming about hunting, writing about hunting, or wishing he were hunting.

That's my Uncle Ed on the left after a fox hunt with some of his buddies. He was the one who introduced me to appreciate the outdoors. The picture was taken in 1957.
Great pictures you have guys.

Keep life simple...if you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras.

This is my first deer, a pretty nice doe. Shot it 30 minutes after the start of legal shooting time in SE Ohio in 1975 with a slug. I thought to myself, "There's nothing to this deer hunting". Took me 5 years to get my second one.
