Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is an absolutely fascinating look at actual hunting accidents—their cause, consequences, and the investigations that follow. Blood on the Leaves could easily be the basis for a dozen novels or a TV series. Well written, informative, and enlightening, it should be required reading for anyone who applies for a hunting license—or anyone who has had their license revoked. Pack this book with your ammo.
—Nelson DeMille, New York Times bestselling author of Radiant Angel

“Staging is only limited by the offender’s imagination among other things. Therefore, it is very important to learn about all types of staging behaviors including those that might be specific to hunting-related incidents. This unique book allows us to do just that.”
—Dr. Laura Pettler, author of Crime Scene Staging Dynamics in Homicide Cases

“Incredibly fascinating, informative, and intriguing. This is a must-read for the hunter, game warden, hunter safety administrator, hunter education instructor, or crime scene investigator in any field. The authors of Blood on the Leaves are the foremost experts in this highly specialized science of investigating hunting incidents. They are passionate about keeping hunters safe, drawing out the nuances of potential crime scenes, comforting all victims, supporting their colleagues through the worst of times, and enforcing the laws. The chapters are captivating stories drawn from personal experience and their real, very real, field investigations of hunters. Some incidents result in serious injury and others death. Their writing style has the reader knowing next to nothing at the start, following in their footsteps searching for and documenting evidence to painstakingly build each case. The best investigator allows the scene to speak for itself, for that is the only way to know what actually happened so that justice will serve victim and all others involved.”
—Dr. Charles Bruckerhoff, Hunter Education Coordinator, Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection

“The stories in this book explore and teach the on-the-ground reality of hunting accidents. Blood on the Leaves lifts the reader to a new level of awareness. It does so through captivating storytelling. In the process the reader learns how minor departures from the safety code of the hunt have unleashed devastating consequences on both victim and shooter.”
— Jim Posewitz, founder of Orion—The Hunter’s Institute, and author of Beyond Fair Chase

'Like me, you probably think you are a very safe hunter. But I promise you, this book will convince you that accidents can happen to even the safest of hunters. We are only a sudden stumble or a misplaced shot away from tragedy. This book is particularly appropriate for new hunters but even for those of us who have been hunting for decades, it offers sobering stories that will assure that we all hunt more safely this fall. Buy this book, read it, and share it with your hunting buddies.' (The Maine Sportsman)

Even though I am not a hunter, I found this book to be a real interesting and informative read. As a matter of fact, I had trouble putting it down. This book should be required reading for any hunter seeking a permit to hunt. By reading about hunting accidents and how to avoid them, the hunter just might learn how to save his life and the lives of others while hunting. Enjoy!

This book will bring out every emotion you can think of! It's heartbreaking, that a life is taking by being careless, sad to loose a family member, frustrating because some are so thoughtless uncaring, can make you angry for those that are so stupid that they try to hide the truth of their wrong doing. It's a learning tool and will make you thing the next time you go out hunting, alone or with others. Take
it to heart and learn from this book!

I'm not a hunter but love the outdoors and this was an amazing book about the both thrill and dangers of the hunt! Each well-told story leaves you (pun intended) with lessons to learn and a real-life experience you’ll not soon forget. More than once, I was brought to tears with some of these tragedies, anger at times and even a few laughs leaving me wonder ‘how did they NOT die!?!!”. I enjoy real-life stories about both the good and evil we humans are capable of and each one of these stories was satisfying!
