More About the Author
While in college earning a business degree, Dale enhanced those skills by taking several courses in primitive anthropology. Later, Dale spent a number of years researching both primal and modern survival skills and techniques. Dale developed skills regarding snares, traps, firearm silencer design, military history, and other "off the beaten path" disciplines.
In 1987, Dale wrote TRAPPER'S BIBLE, and followed that up with INTO THE PRIMITIVE in 1989.
In 2001, Dale was contacted by NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC and asked to write an article about deadfalls.
In 2007, Dale was contacted by THE HISTORY CHANNEL for his input into one of their MODERN MARVELS segments.
In April of 2011, Dale published EVERYMAN'S GUIDE TO OUTDOOR SURVIVAL.
He is also the author of the science fiction novel SAFARI WORLD as well as the historical civil war narrative THE SHOT.
He is co-author (with many others) of the compilation book EVEN MORE DANGEROUSLY FUN STUFF (FOR LITTLE BOYS WHO NEVER GREW UP).
Top Customer Reviews
The basics of snaring are explained extremely well. The illustrations are wonderful and more than adequatly explain every point. Many of his tricks and sets of snares are so clever you wonder why you never though of them.
His box trap plans are pure genius and wonderfully explained. I havent found another source for such amazing trap plans or ideas.
Basically, this book will teach you everything you need to know about snaring. The only thing it leaves out is instructions on what to use to attract and where to set(with some exceptions). He does explain some but not much, it's generally common sense (although you can never assume things like that).
IF YOU ARE GETTING INTO SNARING OR JUST WANTING TO HAVE SOME FUN, YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK. IT WILL GIVE YOU A PROVERBIAL "CRASH COURSE" IN SNARING
FIVE OF FIVE STARS
The book is a starting point. And for that I'll give it two stars.
