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

Dr. Ken Nordberg's Whitetail Hunter's Almanac 9th Edition

Whitetail Hunter's Almanac, 9th Edition: a guide to "trail-hunting," Dr. Nordberg's best adult-buck hunting method ever. The heart of this hunting method is a loop or network of special trails referred to as "cruise trails." Cruise trails are existing deer trails cleaned up in a way that attracts big bucks. Such trails not only quickly become the best buck stand sites in any hunting area, but they guarantee the hunter will discover daily the fresh tracks and/or droppings that indicate where to hunt next. Cruise trails also enable the hunter to hike quickly and unerringly to stand sites, day or night, without being readily identified by nearby deer and/or without alarming nearby deer, thus preserving the hunting potential of intended stand sites. Cruise trails are also the best routes to use when transporting deer from the wilds. Cruise trails provide all these hunting benefits anywhere, even in cornfields

John Nordberg -- This is the last in the series of the Whitetail Hunter's Almanac. Maybe Dr. Nordberg will write another one someday. He certainly still has many stories to tell. As his oldest son, I certainly would love to see him come out with another Almanac, or maybe an edited compilation of all of the early Almanacs? But it has been 8 years since this last almanac. Each of his Almanacs has gone through multiple printings. Maybe if all of you avid readers out there buy out his current stock, he might be motivated to come out with another book. I have always wanted to see him write a large hard-cover whitetail-hunter's-bible-type book, and an outdoor game cookbook. He is one of the best outdoor game cooks you will ever come across. When we get a buck back into camp, we almost always enjoy some of his great cooking, and as an honor to the animal, have some venison heart. As to the content of this book, the information on trails is very sophisticated. Obviously, it was intended to help readers of his early Almanacs -- especially the 7th & 8th editions -- refine their hunting technique. He ends the book with some examples of bucks we harvested in our hunting group. These stories are illustrated with detailed trail maps like the ones you see in the background image on this page. Get yourself a copy and complete your Dr. Ken Nordberg's Whitetail Hunter's Almanac Collection if you haven't already.
