Old Picture of the Day

What is it about old hunting photos that we love so much?

I guarantee you’ve spent a number of nights at deer camp or at home looking through your grandparent’s old hunting photos.

Maybe it’s the nostalgia of an age gone by. Maybe it’s the respect we have for them that they hunted with no modern technology or conveniences. It took real grit to hunt back in those days.

No matter how you slice it, we love old hunting photos, whether it’s from the recent past or way back. Here are some awesome pictures that really capture historic hunting tradition.

Enjoy.
