Review:

"... there is information here. But there is also delight ... as your eyes lift the words from the page, keep a moving picture running on the screen of your mind. There are things here to see as well as hear." -- Sam Fadala, Technical Editor, Rifle Magazine

"The interest of a well told experience is ever present and there is a good variety of experiences filled within valuable field information for all the game discussed." -- Walt McCurdy, Capitaine, President Elect, American Mountain Men
