Anyone have any good bowhunting book suggestions? I just finished Crimson Arrow (a good read) and need more material.

If anyone is looking, I suggest "Sound of the String" by Brad Isham. It gives a view of the spiritual side of bowhunting and our connection with our quarry. It is a very good read. (I've read it 3 times in the last year)

Thanks FUZZ

Look for 'A Thousand Campfires' by the late Jay Massey. Also, anything by E. Donnal Thomas. These are 'traditional' oriented but bow-hunting is bow-hunting.

Thanks DanaC... i just checked and unfortunately Amazon doesn't have any of your suggestions. Gonna hafta take a trip to the library.

Bows of the Little Delta, Witchery of Archery, these are also "old school books" but really enjoyed them.

Hunting with the Bow and Arrow by Saxton Pope

I read this about once per year. I think it should re required reading for all bowhunters:)

You might try reading THE HISTORY OF WISCONSIN BOWHUNTING, 325 pages, available from the WI Bowhunters Assoc. (715) 823-4670 Excellent!
