Dr. Ken Nordberg's do-it-yourself Black Bear Baiting & Hunting Revised 2001 Edition

Dr. Ken Nordberg's Whitetail Hunter's Almanac 8th Edition

Whitetail Hunter's Almanac, 8th Edition: a guide to "mid-hunt cruising," a wolf-inspired hunting tactic that enables the hunter to determine daily where to hunt a buck during the next twenty-four hours without alarming the quarry enough to cause it to abandon currently frequented trails and sites or, worse, without causing it to abandon its entire home or breeding range. Mid-hunt cruising is an extraordinarily effective way to improve buck hunting success, one Dr. Nordberg and his hunting partners use without fail daily. This book also lists items of hunting gear actually improve hunting success, how to avoid becoming lost, what to do upon becoming lost and how to avoid, recognize and treat potentially fatal hypothermia

John Nordberg -- Dr. Ken Nordberg's "Mid-Hunt Cruising" whitetail hunting technique is excellent. Understanding this technique greatly helps a hunter in the woods key off of real-time deer sign -- hunting correctly for the moment -- hunting like a wolf hunts. I am not a collector of the latest deer hunting device or contraption. (When did it become mandatory that a deer hunter had to have an ATV? If they were only used for dragging in a big buck, then that would be OK. The "drag" is a very special part of hunting. What is wrong with using your legs? I believe they are the biggest hindrance to most hunters getting a big buck now-a-days.) With my ATV tirade aside, in our camp, we like good equipment. Starting with our tent and wood burning stove -- which allows us to be out close to the deer -- it keeps us warm even if its 40 below. We can come back to camp, have a quick lunch or even a nap, and go right back out. We hear shots. We hear wolves. We always know what is going on with the weather. I know our camp gives us an advantage. In the early morning, when I am watching deer at the end of their feeding cycle, I always hear vehicles filled with deer hunters coming down the nearby gravel road from the resorts and cabins. Too late. We always talk about our newest gloves, underwear, outerwear and such like it is critical -- because it is. We all have great cots and sleeping bags. We eat like kings: BBQ Ribs, BBQ Chicken, Steak, Spaghetti, Lasagna, and so on. We all use bolt action 7mm Magnum rifles. You won't find us in the smoky bars in the evening. This book by Dr. Nordberg covers all the essentials of tools and equipment. Hey, it is in stock! Order yourself a copy. When you consider how much you have invested in your equipment, what is another 10 bucks?
