Default Good Books?

I was wondering if anybody has some recommendations on Bowhunting books. I'm looking for more technique and deer behavior stuff. Actually cookbooks would be cool too.

"Bowhuntings Whitetail Masters" written in the early 90s by Dan Bertalin......its a book full of information from successful whitetail bowhunters that are forced to hunt the lands that everyone else is. This isn't a private land fenced easy canned hunt type book. The whitetail hunters in this book (there are like 14 or 15 of them featured across the USA) they all have a chapter written on them. I found some quality information in there in regards to philosophy and strategy. Some of the guys featured in the book didn't help out much, but several others did. I read it back in the mid 90's and to date it's still my favorite because several of the fellas in the book were getting it done on pressured ground.

I have read John Ozogdas articles, David Morris's books, which are more of a biological and rifle hunter type books but still quality reads and Jeff Millers books which I found some good information in. Still nothing teaches you better than the animal.

Good luck,

I currently own Modern Bow-Roger Maynard, Whitetail Deer-The Hunting and Fishing Library, and The Complete Hunter-Field and Stream. All those books provide a lot of info on the subject it concentrates on. I would also recommend Cooking Wild Game and Fish from the Missouri Department of Conservation, I think you can find it on their website. And let me not forget other great books from Capstick,Roark,Burger,Roosevelt, and others, great and intense reading. Good Luck!

P.S. Look at Wal-Mart in the sporting goods for some other hunting books.
