In the introduction to A Hunter’s Fireside Book Gene Hill sets himself up as an everyman, someone who you could trade a little bourbon whiskey back and forth with, someone "who’s a lot like you". Ray Childs, who performs this audiobook, has the voice of this person; the warm and gravelly voice of a person you could sit in a duck blind with and trade tales over cold coffee. Hill has a way of picking out the details of the joys of a hunter who might more aptly be called a naturalist or outdoorsman. If you find yourself, like Hill, working too much and yearn for a campfire and a good talk about the outdoors and the simple pleasures of a fine shotgun you’ll have a good friend in this audiobook.
The legendary American outdoor writer’s finest collection. For decades, Gene Hill’s articles and books have captured the spirit of the outdoors in a way that inspires and entertains millions of readers. A Hunter’s Fireside Book captures the essence of the life of a sportsman and explores the full spectrum of the hunter’s experience: sunrises in the duck blind, an unforgettable hunter’s moon, the camaraderie of men who know the pleasures of being wet and cold and a little bit lost.

This is one of Hills best! The audio version is nice to have for listning to while relaxing in the dark of a hunting camp. Just before drifting off to sleep.
Mostly Tail Feathers, Another wonderful collection of Gene Hill's storys. I don't think you can find an audio of this one. However, I highly recommend this book.
Hill the Trap shooter. I can easily relate to his trap shooting yarns.
No, I enjoy listning to a few storys over several eavenings , with a double scotch.
Hill always makes me want to be in the field bird hunting with my brittany..Gracie.
