A GROUSE HUNTER'S ALMANAC: THE OTHER KIND OF HUNTING
Author: Mark Parman
Publisher: UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN PRESS, Sep 2010
An evocative almanac that chronicles the early season of the grouse hunt through its end in the snows of January, Parman follows his dog through the changing trees and foliage, thrills to the sudden flush of beating wings, and holds a bird in hand, thankful for the meal it will provide. 5.5x7.25 inches, 224 pgs
"There are two kinds of hunting: ordinary hunting, and ruffed-grouse hunting."?Aldo Leopold, from A Sand County Almanac
Distilling twenty seasons of grouse hunting into these essays, he writes of old dogs and gun lust, cover and clear cutting, climate change, companions male and female, wildlife art, and stumps. A Grouse Hunter?s Almanac delves into the mind of a hunter, exploring the Northwoods with an eye for more than just game.
