Default Found some vintage hunting photos

Kicking around the Oakland swap meet today, I was pawing through a box of old photo's and found two that I thought I'd share. One is of a deer taken in Napa circa 1941, and the other an undated photo of a fellow with some rabbits.

I thought they were cool, so I figured maybe someone else might, too.

First photo, plus inscription on back. Anyone know of a "Green's Ranch" in Napa?:



Note the date - 3 months and a day before Pearl Harbor:



Rabbits:



Found this one too. Not hunting, but looks maybe Vietnam era?:



And just for grins, an undated pic of some sport with two babes, all in uniform:

Great pictures! I too love old photos like these!

I just put up a thread on my site with some old ones I pulled off the LA Library site. I'll repost them here, if that's cool with you.

Sure thing! Let's make this thread a "vintage hunting photo" thread.

Great! These are from the Los Angeles Public Library's Photo Collection. You could spend a few days checking out all the images they have online. Here are some of the rabbit hunting pictures they have, including the descriptions from the site.

Rabbit Hunters in Rosamond, CA:

A hunter named Kirk poses with his brace of rabbits as his dog looks on:


Photo of Frank Charolla and friends in Boyle Heights after returning from a rabbit hunting trip in Lancaster, 1932:

A group of men are seen with piles of dead rabbits killed in a rabbit drive near the Mountain View Dairy, about thirteen miles southwest of Bakersfield in Kern County. This was the eighth of a series of rabbit drives in the area, which have killed an estimated total of 135,000 full-grown rabbits, thus sparing the farmers in that end of the valley without rabbit-tight fences from being compelled to surrender their ranches to the pests. The drives took place in January, February and March of an unidentified year. (Looks kind of like the CGN Hunt Toby put together last year)


People of Yettem, California, surround a massive kill of jackrabbits. Yettem was called Churchill in 1882 or 1883, the date of the photo:


Rabbit roundup in the San Fernando Valley in 1892:

Heres a few of my grandpappys from the early 1920s, I don't know who the hop-a-long looking guy is. The pic of the guy with the pack horse is my grand pa. the pics were taken somewhere outside Cody Wyoming.

Great pics.

The radio to the left of the driver is a Vietnam era VHF FM that I worked on. PRC-25 in a mobile config IIRC, PRC 77 in a backpack config. AKA as a ***** 77. Used for squad to squad or to talk to range control mostly. When bored on DZs I tuned it to the audio channel of TV channel 4 and listened to soap operas or the news. Hey it was before the days of cellphones and handheld video games, it was all we had. He's got 3 antennas showing but none look like aircraft band radios so he's probably not a FAC or Romad. He's appears to have a backpack radio on the seat or passenger floor too so he could be working aircraft. Usually the commo guy was the first one to draw rounds, then shoot the Lt. . With a fiddy and a pig mounted on the back he's loaded for bear. I want to say that's a AM General jeep but it looks too long and the spare wheel on the door is not right for the jeeps we drove. Anyone? How about the M16, anyone care to venture what flavor?

I love the PSP (Pierced Steel Plank AKA Marsden Mat) on the right of him for a bed box. We made all kinds of gear from that stuff. Bunkers, chairs, tables, sunshades, just get a torch and have at it. Worked for crappy runways too but I don't think we ever used it for that.

I think you're right, I drove an M37 in an ambulance config a few times. Dodge right? I don't recall seeing the spare tires on the door like that but that sure looks like a M37. We never had gun trucks, just AM General jeeps and DOdge 1 ton pickups M880s. Right after I got out our teams got Chenoweth desert race buggies with a fiddy on top with Porsch motors. Now I see our guys tooling around on John Deere mules and up armored Hummers in the sand box. The SAS has a slick sled they use in the desert, Land Rover I believe it's made by.

There's an old pic in Big Bear Lake Sporting goods from the 20s of a couple guys with like 200 canvasback ducks laid out. If you ever shot the Stanfield cutoff before they shut down duck hunting at BB you know that pic is no fake.

It is a lot of rabbits! But there is a reason you hear the saying "breed like rabbits", they multiply fast. Long time ago me and a bunch of buddies were driving back from idaho on a lonely stretch of highway. I got the night shift, so driving about 2am came across a rabbit in the road, dodge it. Then more rabbits, dodge them. Next thing the whole road was covered with rabbits for miles. It was like a bad sci fi film from the '50's. You couldn't avoid hitting them, and seeing a bunch of already flattened bunnies on the road, was not about to pull over and wait for a buffalo like herd of rabbits to disappear. We made it home on time.

Old pics are always so cool. Gives you a chance to look back when the world wasn't so crazy. People left keys in their cars when running around town, didn't even lock their front doors when they left the house. And best of all, people didn't freak out seeing a gun.

I've seen the remnants of those fences in in some of the pastures and old fence lines up here, I had heard the stores of the drives and shoots. they were a real problem in this state and people would get together and have these drives and shoots. They were huge social events as evidenced by the ladies dressed and involved whole communities.

I got this from a store owner we know in the Antelope Valley (North of Los Angeles). He had a copy of it hanging and made me a copy!

I would love to have been around back then with a rifle and a bunch of ammo!!
