Jack O'Connor inspired classic sheep hunting package. Signed book, pre-64 model 70 .270 Win, and Skyliner jacket.

This package includes a signed copy of The Lost Classics of Jack O'Connor by Jim Casada signed by Jack’s son Bradford O’Connor and dedicated to the RMBS.

Book Overview - Born January 22, 1902, in Arizona Territory, John Woolf O'Connor ultimately became America's most popular outdoor writer. From his first magazine article in 1934, which he sold to Sports Afield for a whopping $12.50, and continuing until just a few weeks before his death in 1978, Jack O'Connor would write nine books on hunting and sporting firearms and more than 1,200 articles for Outdoor Life, Field & Stream, Redbook, True and Esquire. His longest and most treasured magazine association, however, was with Outdoor Life. The Lost Classics of Jack O'Connor features 40 of his best Outdoor Life articles, none of which have ever appeared in any other book. They range from O'Connor's hunts for Coues deer in his beloved desert Southwest to his pursuit of Dall sheep and grizzlies in the Yukon and lions and leopards in Africa.

Also included is a Pre-64 Winchester model 70 bolt action rifle chambered in .270 Win. Circa 1953. The scope is a period correct Weaver K V, the predecessor to today’s variable scopes. Also period correct are the Weaver tip-off mounts and rings. The quintessential sheep hunting rig that O'Connor would advocate time and again in his writings.

And finally – A limited edition remake of the classic Eddie Bauer Skyliner down jacket. Practically standard equipment of outdoorsmen back in the day (see photo). The coat is a pre-owned, size large.
