Sportsman's Digest by Hal Sharp

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

How many of our readers remember the Hal Sharp, Sportsman’s Digest series that was syndicated to newspapers all across America?

I have been fortunate to have now in my possession, but unfortunately do not own, an entire spiral ring notebook with what has to be several years worth of the newspaper clippings of Hal Sharp’s Sportsman’s Digest.

I became privvy to these through our Chief Photographer, Milt Inman at Maine Hunting Today. Years ago, my best estimate is the 1950s and 1960s, Milt’s mother, painstakingly clipped each piece as it appeared in the local newspaper. I’m not sure but it may have been the Lewiston Daily Sun.

She took each article and pasted it, the old fashioned way, onto the page of a spiral ring notebook. The articles are somewhat weathered from years of laying around the Albany hunting camp but a great source of seeing how things were done and perceived over 40 years ago.

Below I have posted one clipping that I scanned into my computer files. I will add some of these over the next few weeks as space permits.
