1899 photo of a hunting camp on the western edge of the Hill Country in Kimble County. It's the Turner Ranch at what is now South Llano State Park.

The Hill country had bucks almost on par with their south Texas cousins up until the 60s-70s. My Dad and his friends took bucks like those two in the photo pretty regularly back in the 50s.

Love the photo!

I sure would have liked an opportunity to sit at that campfire and listen to those boys hunting stories. Once upon a time it could be done without box blinds, scent control, UTV, feeders and variable power 50 mm scopes.

Either that picture, or one very near it, is in the Menger Bar, Menger Hotel, San Antonio.... not that I've seen it, just from anecdotal information...
