Intro to Magazine Articles from the Past

Welcome to the African hunting section of the old magazine articles. As with the old articles on double rifles, these came from the box of cut-outs from James Watts. I saved them for 15 years--not wanting to throw them away--but I knew they had some value to them if only for historical content. In the 1950s and 1960s it was not only the gun magazines that ran articles on African hunting--it was the men's magazines, also. You older guys may remember them--exciting stories about detectives, police work, scantly-clad women--and hunting the big five. The lion articles are here now as are those on the crocs. Rhino will follow then elephant, buffalo, leopard, some good general stories on plains game, etc., and (of course) some Africa stories by the master himself, Elmer Keith. Read and enjoy the stories of Africa that are gone forever. They can't be relived today at any price.
