5.0 out of 5 stars Elk Hunting with a Handgun--Unpackaged! September 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hunting Elk by Handgun--A Primer for Beginners, a Refresher for Others by Gary Marbut meets and surpasses his goal as a straight-forward, no-nonsense, yet personable approach to hunting elk. Explaining that hunting with a handgun may not be for everyone, Gary methodically lays out the "nuts and bolts" of this motivating outdoor experience. While Gary ascertains a skilled rifle shooter, having a powerful rifle with great accuracy only needs to get within 500 yards of the critter, the stealthiness of the handgun hunter will pay off taking a shot at an elk 30-40 yards away. The beginner as well as the seasoned hunter will appreciate the clear and concise "SAFETY FIRST" discussions about equipment, ammo, scouting, knowing your game, shot placement for ethical hunting, game retrieval and more. Mr. Marbut offers sensible gun modification tips in addition to perfecting front site alignment. Did I mention, "safety first?" Gary makes his case to newcomers and experts alike to feel at home with clarifying examples and stories from his vast experience. This e-book, just published in 2013, by Montana Publishing, and selling for the economical price of $3.49, remains well worth the read. Anyone for an juicy, grilled elk steak?

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a fun read. September 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Hunting with a traditional handgun requires special consideration of the firearm employed, and lots of practice with it, as well as scouting and stealth tactics similar to that required for bow hunting. This book covers all that ground, with extra emphasis on pistol craft, which is Gary Marbut's interest and speciality. Hunters who carry a sidearm will find suggestions that will improve their shooting and safe firearm handling skills whether or not the handgun is the primary weapon of choice for the hunt. For those considering hunting elk with with a traditional handgun, this book will be very helpful, and will provide inspiration to rise to the challenge.
