SOUTHERN SPORTSMAN. The Southern Sportsman, a hunting and fishing magazine published in 1936 by Joe Austell Small of Austin, Texas, was later purchased by the Steck Company of Austin. At one time the magazine's circulation totaled 33,000 paid subscriptions. World War II caused its suspension, and ownership reverted to Small. Plans were made for its revival, but in early 1973 the magazine had not again been put into publication.
