The only chapter that I found of any practical or informative value was "Why they circle and why they hole up" which was only a few pages. If the book contained anything remotely resembling a "secret" it was in this chapter. There was almost no information about rabbit natural history, behavior, food preferences, habitat, hunting tactics--in short, none of the stuff that I thought might qualify as a "secret."
Rather than buy the book, I'll just sum it up here for you: "I shot a ton of rabbits. It was fun. Man, I love them dogs."
WARNING: This is the hardcover version of "Rabbit Hunting - Secrets of A Master Cottontail Hunter". The way they are advertised on Amazon is a bit misleading. They are one in the same. You don't need both.
It should be noted that despite the title, Rabbit Hunting, it is about rabbit hunting with beagles. If a reader is interested in rabbit hunting by means other than beagles, it would be best to look elsewhere. However, if the reader seeks a book on hunting beagles, this is ideal as there are few other works on the subject and the advice is practical. It would be a good addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in hunting or sporting dogs.
If you have dogs accompanying you hunting, get this otherwise it has probably 10 pages of material on hunting solo without dogs.
Not what I was looking for. Title should be 'Rabbit Hunting with Beagles...'
Mr. Fisher's other book, 'Guide to Rabbit Hunting: Secrets of a Master Cottontail Hunter', is the same book but with a different cover and some of the chapters are rearranged. It might be deceiving for some folks; buyers might want be told beforehand by the author and/or publisher if this is a reprint of a previous volume.
