Great book!

Enjoyed this book very much. I'm getting into hunting and considering learning to shoot a bow instead of using a gun and this book certainly makes me want to continue pursuing this idea. Also there were great hunting stories, as well a technical info for established bow hunters. Get it!

Great read

A different sort of hunting book. Unless your brain is a sponge, then good for a reread. I highly recommend this book and also suggest taking notes.... after you’ve read it all the way through the 1st time. I’m starting reading #2 now.

Bow hunting 101

Although this book specifically deals with traditional bow hunting, it has good lessons for all bowhunters. Especially the lessons of conservation and ethical hunting. We must all raise our game to be the hunter who is respected and appreciated for their contributions to nature and it’s future.
