Book recommendations

Thread starter #1
Many of y'all know I'm brand new to hunting. I've been asking a ton of questions on here and getting some really good advice. However, I think I might be able to ask even better questions if I had a few basic primer books in the topic. Really interested in learning about deer, bear and hog hunting. I'm also really interested in learning about hunting the mountain areas/wma's.

Did a quick check on Amazon and there are plenty of books, they all get about 3-4 stars review. That's not all that helpful. They can't all be good. So, any good recommendations...

Thanks in advance

Steve Rinella The Complete Guide to Hunting, Butchering and Cooking Wild Game. Great book to get you more than started.
Very good! I've watched video's on Netflix, Steve is a good hunter.
The GON magazine is also great!

So, when I first started thinking about hunting this was the first book I got, because it has a ton of great reviews on Amazon and was available as a kindle purchase. However, after being in the field and now going back and reading it again - I didn't even know what I didn't know! There are a ton of good little tips, trick in there that this re-read (at your suggestion) has been 2, maybe 3 times as informative as the first read. I love books like that.

Anything by Leonard Lee Rue lll. Hunting Whitetails Successfully by J. Wayne Fears is a gooden for beginners. Both are old school but the deer ain't changed.
@strothershwacker thanks man. I will check those out!

I think you are on the rt track , just hang in there and keep spending all the time u can in the woods, it will come together , but I don’t care for reading !
 
Hunting Trophy White Tails by John Wooters is great for the any deer hunter, you may can find it on e-bay. Also everything those above my post will help. Best of luck to ya.
 
Big Bucks the Benoit Way is a good read. While tracking deer in the snow isn’t very important for most of down south there is ton of info in this book about buck behavior that can apply anywhere.

I tried to track deer in the snow when I was a kid. Walked for miles never seen anything. prolly to noisy
