American Frontiersman - Fall 2020

For most of our readers, the fall season will mark the transition from scorching hot days to cool breezy nights. This idea of change led us to think about the frontiersman of the past and how they would have viewed the technological advances of today, like Traditions’ new standout arrow- and .22 -firing rifle or the wide selection of trail cams that can help you keep tabs on critters 24/7. Even the evolution of disguising your sets better, as explained by author Ralph Scherder, would have sparked a sense of curiosity and appreciation.

While there’s no doubt that we’ve come a long way in some aspects, some ideas from the past are still very much alive today. Author Frank Jardim tells the story of how the House brothers saved flintlock artistry, Mark Herwig shows you how to make the original fast food, and John Phillips explains why squirrel hunting on the frontier was best accomplished with the Kentucky longrifle.
