As a voracious reader for more than 40 years, I can’t specifically say how many serious adult books I’ve read cover-to-cover over the years in a “can’t put it down” session.
I’m a fan of just about anything: magazines, books, newspapers, old history, political history, wildlife management and more. A magazine doesn’t last long in my hands. I have a Nook e-reader that I didn’t think I’d enjoy at first but now absolutely love it. I have a couple of 600-page books, Deer & Deer Hunting magazine and more on there in a lightweight take-along for trips or at home.
By the way, you can get Deer & Deer Hunting for your e-reader by going here. It’s available for Kindle, Nook, Zinio and Google Play so you can take it anywhere and enjoy anytime.
One of the best can’t-put-it-down books I read, though, was Deer & Deer Hunting’s “Guide to Better Bowhunting.” It’s just 128 pages but within those covers are fantastic tips, secrets and just flat-out basic, fundamental bowhunting knowledge. I read it all in one night and have re-read it a few times again. Re-reading books isn’t one of my usual things to do, but plucking a chapter here or there from this one helps me.
I’ve shot a bow for more than 30 years. I don’t get into the technical nuts-and-bolts stuff, although I probably should do more of that. Like I am with firearms, I want something reliable that does what it’s supposed to do that I can be confident with and enjoy without trying to digest ballistics or trajectories.
But reading the Guide to Better Bowhunting helped me pick up a few more tips. It’s a super book that I recommend.
