Default old family hunting photos

I had a chance to go through my grandmother's albums and found several pictures that I thought viewers might enjoy


Great Grand pop's car with Railbirds I think


the family duck hunting paradise "jumbo" on Oldman's creek in Southern NJ


my father starting out young


Dad and my Great Grandfather in one of the duck boats


Dad with either the Parker or the LC Smith which we still hunt with




Dad with the Parker VH my Great Grandfather bought from EK Tyron in Philadelphia around the corner from his taxidermist shop


Apparently the Parker deer hunted too


Great Gramps at a hunting club in the Pocono's






Apparently it got cold


Pass the Famous Grouse?

Nice!

I just heard from my sister that one of the cousins has some snapshots with my Dad in them that were taken at the old Dahmer family hunting/fishing camp on the Cache River in Southern Illinois. I didn't get to go visit while I was hope this past trip but Christmas will see me deep in their photo albums to see if that's true. This stuff is too precious for words, really nice.

Destry, give Don a hint about what an original photo like his railbird shot would sell for on the open market. They are just wonderful shots.

Depends on what type of photo it actually is really. A photo on a heavy cardstock backer or a real photo postcard showing railbirding would bring pretty good money. If it's just a snapshot the price would be quite a bit lower. For some reason the brownie camera type snapshot photos just don't go that high.

To me, if I had photos like this of family, nobody would have enough money to buy them.

The little snapshot of my Dad I've got that shows him holding up his first double barrel and first storebought fishing rod is worth more than any Parker I currently own, at least to me that is.

The railbird photo is an 5x7 on whatever regular photo paper would be from those days. It was a great surprise to see it in the album.

Nice!

The one with your Dad sitting on the edge of the duck boat is my favorite though.

Is the "Sky Top" hunting club at Mount Pocono the same "Sky Top" lodge that exists today? I wonder if the building in the picture is still standing. I have not been to Sky Top, but some of us have.

They are some great pics, the frozen deer I liked that one.
Oldmans creek? is that in Salem or Gloucester county? and did the Barnegat sneakbox survive thru the years?
