A hit-the-target game 2 can play

While hunting at Urban Ore for fascinating old junk, I found this great 1963 publication by Whitman Publishing Company (a subsidiary of the now defunct Western Publishing).

Your blood-thirsty young ones can play at being British colonial hunters on safari, shooting wild game in the jungle with punch-out rifles and rubber bands. The game comes with jungle hats, compasses, clip-on mustaches, guns, even monocles!! The quarry includes parrots, toucans, a gorilla, giraffe, leopard, lion, snake, monkey, and even a hippopotamus!!
