HuntingLife 25 Best Christmas Gifts for Hunters – Boone and Crockett Club’s Hunting Books

Welcome to our 25 Best Christmas Gifts for Hunters, Each day we are going to pick an item from our collection that should give weary shoppers an idea of some of the things that hunters really want for Christmas!!!

Vintage Hunting AlbumSince the Boone and Crockett Club published its first records book in 1932, it has received an increasing number of photos from hunters with trophy entries. In the 1930s only about 15 percent or less of trophy entries were accompanied by photos, likely due to the fact that cameras were bigger, more cumbersome and difficult to operate back then. Photos for trophies taken prior to this are even scarcer. (The names, places, and animals are an incredible step back in time.)

A picture is worth a thousand words-this couldn’t be truer with the release of Boone and Crockett Club’s newest book on the history of big game hunting featuring page after page of remarkable photographs of our hunting heritage dating back to the late 1800s. Readers will enjoy hours perusing through this album. Details that only a sportsmen would notice such as vintage firearms, custom knives, old-school hunting gear, and classic cars abound throughout this album.
