38 Vintage Outdoor Life Waterfowl Covers

We rounded up nearly every old duck and goose cover from the OL archives

Outdoor Life has always been packed with adventure stories, tips, tactics, op-eds, and yeah, ads. But for many readers, the best part of receiving each issue in the mail was getting to see what was on the magazine—not in it. The old-school cover illustrations on OL were an icon of their time, and remain one of our most cherished legacies. So here’s a look at nearly every waterfowl cover we’ve run since 1898. A handful might be missing due to spotty records, so if we’ve forgotten any, be sure to let us know. And if you want to read through the issues these covers belong to, consider a subscription to our digital archives.
