Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

One by-product of current anti-hunting sentiment is that hunting lore gets lost in the process. In the musings of Proper, however, such literature lives on. Pheasant hunting is his focus and serves as a springboard for philosophizing on camaraderie, recreation, agricultural methods, dogs, outdoor equipment, property management, cooking, and other important facets of leisure or not-so-leisure time. Those who think hunting is hokey or barbaric have probably never read Aldo Leopold, Theodore Roosevelt, or Datus Proper. The love of land, seasons, or times of day, the old and new ways of outdoor sportsmanship, and the styles and manners by which we live are admirably explicated in these well-crafted essays. Highly recommended for hunting/natural history collections.
- Henry T. Armistead, Thomas Jefferson Univ. Lib., Philadelphia

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What makes this book a gem is the description of how the author hunts a particular pheasant. His dog sticks with tracking/trailing an individual bird. This changes the style and tempo of the hunt. Very interesting. Poetically written as well. Proper is a true author as well as a true hunter. Rare mix.
