Can a Caribou Catch on Fire?
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
This might be interesting. Congrats and good luck on your book.
I'll have a check in the mail on Monday!
I'm in, Checks in the mail.
I'm always up for a good read Pete...and I get a good feeling about this one.....
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.
I'm pretty sure I left that story out! No painful memories, but then again no great successes either! It's all good bro!
Pete is a great storyteller with a stunning amount of experience. His book is a great read!
Thanks for the kind words. I think what you MEANT to say is "Pete is an accomplished BS-er!"
Check going in the mail in the morning!!!
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.
I don;t know if I can read a book written by someone that uses the phrase: "it's all good bro!" ;-)
Go ahead..... take a chance!
Venmo sent. You told me the burning caribou story!!!!!!!
Does that include signing it? =D
TD: Yes sir. I can still write my own name....!
Checks in the mail buddy!
Happy Opening Day of Moose Season!
I may not just wait by the mailbox, but I always enjoy getting checks in the mail! I'll let you know when the book ships.
Just saw this thread. Check is going in the mail today! Caribou on fire? Should be interesting!!!
I was hoping to pick up my copy in person… fkn rain
Although I am sill waiting on hearing from Stan
And I was planning on presenting you with your very own copy on our way to Geraldo's for dinner!
Thanks to all the guys who happily sent me book orders!
Im excited to see my copy!
By the way I didn't write "fuzzy" on my check. You should have it by now. Cecil Sink Bland VA
Can someone use PayPal and pay fees?
I've learned how to use/accept Venmo. No PayPal yet... Sorry.
I will get a check out then. Thanks for your response Pete. Jim
Pete..... how do they say that? oh yeah.
The check is in the mail. =D
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.
I really like buying directly from the authors
Looking forward to it Pete!
Anxiously awaiting mine. Hoping to have it so I could read it sone this weekend at my hunting cabin. Hasn’t got here yet. But, it might tomorrow before I leave!!
Yep, looking forward to receiving mine as well.
I seem to be caught up on orders. Now would be a great time to order yours if you have not already! Thanks. Pete
My check goes out tomorrow Pete. Looking forward to reading your experiences. Jim
These days I'm better at writing about my experiences than I am "adventuring!"
That said, in June I head off to Africa again. Maybe I can write the trip off as "gathering information" for a new book as a sequel!!!
Got my copy today just in time for a crappy weather opening day for Archery deer season. Guess what I'll be reading in the blind
Finished it in one rainy weekend! Very well done! "5 stars" * * * * *
Thanks for that endorsement.
BTW, it is fun to read even if it is NOT rainy!
Sending a check today. Looking forward to learning how to set a live caribou on fire - the old flaming arrow trick?
There were a couple fires related to deer species in the book :)
Started reading tonight. Very entertaining. That's a great buff Pete. Look forward to continuing the book tomorrow night!
Halfway through. I read a chapter at bed time. Solid book & very entertaining. You've got a good easy writing style Pete that puts the reader into the story. Highly recommend if you love hunting stories!
Thank you for the mini-review Nomad! Glad you are enjoying it.
I still have a garage full of books if anyone needs one or is thinking of giving one to a fellow hunter for a Christmas gift!
Send $. Help support MY hunting habit!
Thanks Pete! Got my SIGNED copy today! =D
Glanced through it (just my style, a book with pictures.....) Awesome classic pictures. Can hardly wait. Gonna start actually, you know.... reading it tonight. So much adventure....
Thanks much. I'll be back.... and i'll try not to spoil the ending. =D
