Ever wondered if it's possible to light a caribou on fire? The answer is in here!

Over the years Bowsiters and others have encouraged me to write a book. I have finally done so. It chronicles some of my Alaska adventures, as well as hunts in Africa, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and some L48 states. There's a chapter on my short career as an elk guide in NM.

The book is the unlikely tale of a skinny bowhunter from, of all places, New Jersey, who moved to Alaska and became Alaska Master Guide #79, was elected President of the Alaska Trappers Association and even served on the Alaska Board of Game and Alaska Guide Board.

I'm offering it here with Pat's express permission. Send $25 to Pete Buist, P.O. Box 71561, Fairbanks, AK 99707. Or Venmo $25 to Clearwater Outdoor Services. I'll autograph your copy and pop it in the mail to you in time to be read in a tree stand! Thanks, Pete

Can’t wait to get it, I’ll give my review after the read. I hope there isn’t a chapter that talks about turkey hunting in OH ??. It would be a short chapter.

Straight Shooter:

I'm pretty sure I left that story out! No painful memories, but then again no great successes either! It's all good bro!

I'm glad I'm not depending on book sales and SS to buy groceries.... but sales are brisk and I'm at least making gas money! Thank you.

My copy of your book arrived yesterday, thanks for the fast shipping.

Thanks to all the Bowsiters who sent checks/Venmo and bought copies of the book. I make more on a copy when you buy it from me, rather than buying on Amazon, etc. I hope you are all enjoying the book. It is fun to tell my stories and share them... and something I've always wanted to do.
