LIFE Archives | Hunting in the Old Days

Yesterday the LIFE Archive was gracious enough to present us with some of the best pictures of "Hunting in the Old Days". Between picture of Papa Hemingway and Ike (Eisenhower) we are given a very American (at least those are the pictures I chose to feature) perspective of hunting when the Remington or the Winchester was a man's best friend.

Northern Austrailia, 1931

Theodore Roosevelt on African Safari, 1909
