No Huntong Stories

It tells more about how they sneak guns around their wives and about drinking and shooting at the range. Very few stories on actual hunting, and when you do get one it is focused on how the man is smoking his pipe.

Disappointing

If you think lying to and sneaking around your spouse is funny. If you believe you're wife or any woman is a ditz and only interested in fashion and house keeping and making you lunch. If you don't actually to hunt, but are really interested in the idea of and pretending like you hunt in the presence of others. Finally, if you are under the illusion that trap shooting is hunting. Then you will enjoy this book a hell of a lot more than I did.

Beyond acquiring meat, this is why we go afield

Gene Hill is a master in delivering on the passion that is behind every sunrise, hooked fish on the run, decoying migratory birds, whitetails sneaking through woodlots, elk bugles echoing over canyons, and the hair-raising feeling of treading on the same ground as dangerous game. His stories grip your soul making you broadly smile one moment while choking up the next. If you can't explain why you hunt and fish, and perhaps it's because you just do, or maybe it's because of the emotions that Gene Hill tugs at so well.

Good read

This is a fun and enjoyable book. Funny antidotes of hunting, sport shooting, and the hobby that makes a sportsman.

Boooo

This book absolutely sucked. Just a horrible piece of work… man, I could hardly understand half of the things in here

  • Overall
    4 out of 5 stars

Half the book really is about hiding gun purchases

Since I dont have a rambling old duck hunter in my life I was able to appreciate this book. The delivery of the information is a little different and a nice change of pace.

great book

I feel like it portrays the author well. the oldtimers look at the hunting lifestyle just leaves you aching for the feild to find meaning.
