Default The Best Hunting Books

It has been a while since I have seen a post about books we have read. So far in my off season I have been able to complete 4 books.

Hunting Trophy Whitetails - 8 out of 10
Good info but some of his ideas want work on my hunting ground

Fred Bear Field Notes -8 of 10
I enjoyed reading about Fred Bear but was a little disappointed in some of the decisions made in his hunts.

Ben Lilly the Legend - 10 of 10
This book is kind of a tall tail about an old bear and mountain lion hunter. The truth wasn't stretched too far and I thought it was an excelen book. The guy was around in the early 1900's and lived in the wilderness.

Ben Lilly, Bears, Lions, and Hounds - 9 of 10
This book is good but it exposes the realistic story of Ben Lilly. But it also shows the true parts of his life as well.

Bow Hunting Equipment and Skills -
I have not finished this book yet but so far it has a lot of insight to tuning your bow. I think it will end up being a 10 of 10 but I'll wait to give my oppinion.

You guy's let me know what books you have read and wich ones you think are the best. Only list the hunting or outdoor books. Move it if you need to MODS, I only posted it here b/c this is were I spend my time and I thought it would be interesting.

Not too many readers here (of books that is)!

I recently enjoyed Greg Miller's "Proven Whitetail Tactics." It's fairly old, but good for those looking
for some new ideas. It also has a fair amount of bowhunting in it.

Any other good book recs similar to that one would be appreciated.

I really like Giant Whitetails: A Lifetime of Lessons by Mark and Terry Drury. Looks good on a coffee table, too.

"Hunting the Hard Way" by Howard Hill.

Love reading about Howard hunting Free Range Buffalo going full speed on a Mustang bareback.

His underwater hunting with a bow is also fascinating to me.

This sounds like my next book. I enjoy reading about guy's that go above and beyond to achieve there hunting goals. I wish I was in a situation to go into the wilderness for months on end.

Hunting Trohpy Whitetails by David Morris.

This book, is far and beyond the best deer hunting book out there, IMHO.

Covers EVERYTHING you can think of....it truly is a must read, not just for any whitetail hunter, but for the trophy hunter as well....

Also, 10th Legion by Tom Kelly

Illumination of the Flatwoods- GREAT BOOK.....

Good Post!
