Field & Stream 1921 Nash Buckingham


A 30-minute motion picture on CD consisting of three series of hunting scenes that were filmed by Field and Stream in 1921. Eltinge Warner, owner/publisher of Field and Stream, is seen hunting ducks at Wapanocca Outing Club near Turrell Arkansas with Nash Buckingham; shooting geese with Buckinham near Greenville, Mississippi, and a hunt near Grenada, Mississippi, shooting quail with Buckingham.

In 1906, Warner bought Field and Stream from its founder and in 1950 sold the magazine. In 1916, he began a motion picture career, producing films on hunting and fishing. In the fall of 1920, Warner came South to duck hunt with Buckingham and it was then that he asked Buckingham if he would interested in shooting some hunting scenes the following year. Buckingham agreed and it was determined that they would shoot four films near Memphis. As it turned out, only three were filmed. The the one to be at Mud Lake near Hughes, Arkansas, at the Mud Lake Hunting Club, did not plan out, so the three you will see on this video were filmed and later released.

In 1921, Field and Stream filmed 12 outdoor sporting subjects of hunting and fishing. In the fall of 1922, he released a series of 12 one-reel sporting pictures under the general title of “Days Afield with Rod and Gun.” Warner appeared in some of the films as he does in this one. By 1923, all 12 films met with great success in first-run theaters across the nation. The first was entitled “The Goose,” the one mentioned above; the second release was the quail hunt mentioned above; and the fourth was duck shooting at the Wapanocca Outing Club with Nash Buckingham. Eltinge appeared in all three of these films.

Warner also appeared in a black duck hunt on the Great South Bay of Long Island which one can buy on this site.

Warner devoted his life to wild life conservation. As an active game conservationist he lobbied for passage of the Migratory Bird Treaty with Canada and was a member of DU.
