My husband bought this book and recommended that I read it also I am a reader and I m always looking for a new book to get into, but my first thought was, Really I don t want to read about hunting It seemed to mean a lot to him that I read it Well, to my surprise, this was not just a hunting book Mr Spring explains the thoughts and emotions that go along with his experiences in nature to the point that I felt like I was right there with him I would recommend this book, not only to hunters, but maybe also to their loved ones who are left at home during hunting season It was an eye opening view into a world I knew nothing about I m so glad I read it and I think I will look into buying Mr Spring s other books for my husband.
I was so happy that Mr Spring gave us a book of his fine outdoor stories Nothing wrong with how to books but in the end those memories you made, that is really what it is all about Mr Spring gets that important point and fully realizes that you can still have a great day even when you don t win against the wildlife you pursue A bunch of the points that he put in this book had me shaking my head yes as I fully agreed with him and could easily relate to those points For sure a book to add to your collection Thank You so much Mr Spring
Gift for my husband He said it was a good hunting book He has read so many hunting books I was worried, but he said it was a good choice.
Be prepared when you sit back to read this book All of your ghosts of autumn will be there Thank you, Joel It was a wonderful experience.
