Go Back in Time With These 18 Vintage Hunting Photos

My, oh my, how things have changed.

In the past, it was definitely a truer form of hunting than we know today. These folks didn’t have much help in regards to clothing, gear, and electronics back then.

Makes me wonder…

How many of us would be a successful hunter if we had to do it the old fashioned way? No big cozy blind with sliding windows to keep the cold wind off of you. No scent killers. No ATV’s. No scopes. No camo!

Take a trip into the past with this collection of vintage hunting photos.
