A good friend just sent me this old magazine (1936). This particular issue mostly covered waterfowl and upland bird hunting. Things were pretty bleak back then during the depression and the dust bowl years. These were the early years of wildlife conservation. Very interesting reading.

Looks great Marty...I love reading those old magazines...such an insight into the way things were...back in the days when men were men, and pansies were flowers.

Cheers, Vince

2 year subscription for $1

New Marlin lever action for $26.95

You don't want to know what the average wage was though.

Yeah, that's what I like about the old magazines. It's a real contrast to how pussified society has become recently.

The gun evaluations hadn't yet become co-opted by their advertising interests either. The writers didn't pull any punches back then.

This issue has a great write up of a prototype bolt action rifle the writer had a chance to test: the soon-to-be-introduced Winchester Model 70. He had nothing bad to say about this innovative new rifle, but really slammed some of the then available bolt action competition. This is a lengthy article, but I am considering taking the time to type it up as a HuntingNut article. Very good reading.

marty, most scanners have OCR and will give you a word file of the article. If you don't have one, do a high-res scan or photo and send it to me and I'll have it OCR'd.
