Announcing the May/June 2017 Issue of Sporting Classics

Jack O’Connor, Pope & Young’s African safari, a record polar bear, and much more!

 

Our latest issue is on its way to subscribers’ homes. The May/June 2017 issue has something for everyone—classic hunts by Jack O’Connor, Saxton Pope, and Arthur Young; bowhunting for turkeys with traditional tackle; dogsledding across the frozen Arctic after polar bears and musk oxen; a near-deadly duck hunt; monster fish (figuratively and literally); falconry. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
