Jack O’Connor was the undisputed dean of outdoor writers. For decades, his feature articles in Outdoor Life Magazine brought excitement, enjoyment and a sense of appreciation for wildlife and hunting to millions of people throughout the world.
The sense of adventure that came alive in his many writings inspired, informed, and educated outdoorsmen and hunters about wildlife conservation and modern wildlife management.
The Jack O'Connor Center opened June 3, 2006. It is the permanent home of the O'Connor wildlife collection, which is comprised of 65 mounted heads from around the world, numerous photographs and O'Connor memorabilia, as well as a complete collection of O'Connor books and many outdoor magazine articles.
Jack's famous Biesen stocked M-70 .270 is on display as is Eleanor O'Connor's 7x57 Mauser. These two rifles have appeared in more articles and had more written about them than any rifles in history. Other O'Connor firearms are also on display.
