Rate Article0%0%

Whether you grew up reading Jack O'Connor in Outdoor Life or have never read his work before, you'll enjoy this look back at America's greatest gun writer.



Editor-in-Chief Todd W. Smith grew up reading O'Connor in Outdoor Life.



"For a boy of 10, his stories about hunting tigers in India and great blackmaned lions in Africa took me places I could only dream of.Rarely do you come away from an O'Connor piece without knowing a little of the history and geography of where he was hunting, the rifle and load he was using and the taxonomy of the animal he was pursuing--all beautifully illustrated in rich word-pictures that make you feel like you're right beside him as the wounded buiffalo charges or a 40-inch ram suddenly appears on a distant mountaintop," said Smith.



We hope you enjoy this section we have put together to honor one of Outdoor Life's most accomplished writers.

There was only 1 JO'C and no one today can hold a candle to his writing.
