12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By A. Kennedy on March 8, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This book is very informative. If you are just starting out, or considering trying you luck with a critter that maybe you have less experience with, then you will find this book very helpful. Chapter 12 is on firearms safety, 13 is on hunting ethics, and 14 (the last chapter) covers processing game and includes some interesting game recipes. I think there is a little something in this book for everyone that enjoys hunting and someone just beginning to take up hunting is sure to benefit the most. My teenage daughters recently expressed an interest in hunting (much to my surprise) and I bought this book hoping to find material that would cover a wide range on hunting topics. I hunt, but until this year never considered that my girls would have an interest in hunting and I neglected the opportunity of starting their hunting education earlier. I think this book is just what I was looking for and will be a great way to get them started, along with the basic hunters certification course and actual time in the field with dad. I highly recommend!

An excellent read with separate chapters on different species, including their natural histories and tactics. Gives clear and helpful advice on equipment, including calls and meat preparation. A great book for 'dipping into'.

This book is useful for all hunters, either novice or expert afield. The author has a straightforward easy style that is effective in presenting information while at the same time keeping the reader's interest. I found his chapter on squirrel hunting especially good. There are several recipes included which provides the logical and practical conclusion after successfully mastering his techniques.

For those who focus on small game and varmints, this book is a virtual Bible of information. It's fun to read and you'll really begin to get an itchy trigger finger before you know it, even to the extent that you'd consider traveling to an area to hunt critters that don't reside in your neck of the woods. I really enjoyed this book!
