This roundup happens to contain my personal favorite cover out of all the OL covers, from the November 1961 issue. The composition is striking: the handsome bull elk in the foreground has clearly just hit the ground; the hunter on horseback who killed him is framed inside his antlers, rifle in hand as he rides to confront the grizzly who also seeks to claim the carcass. "Outdoor Life" is arranged boldly around the massive hump of the bear's back. The warm fall colors and misty indigo mountains in the back complete the scene. In fact, I like this image so much that I framed it not once, but twice: It hangs both in my cubicle at the OL headquarters and over my kitchen table in my Brooklyn apartment (aka the home office).
