More Information
A one-of-a-kind collection of stories about a journey through life as seen through the eyes of a hunter.

Navigating with amazing skill between vivid backwoods adventure and earthy humor, the stories in Love of the Hunt comprise a compelling and entertaining account of the author?s five-decade relationship to the world of hunting. Beginning with his first grizzly shoot in British Columbia in 1957, John Winsor takes the reader along the road of a lifetime?s worth of adventures and misadventures, from tracking deer in Wisconsin and black bear in Montana to haggling with unreasonable landowners and sharing a gamut of experiences both high and low with family, friends, strangers, and guides. With stories about trophy elk, cougar, and upland birds, Love of the Hunt covers almost the entire range of North American hunting. Along the way, Winsor conveys in his encounters, with great wit and emotion, sharp observations of the people he meets and deep-seated feelings about hunting and hunting companions. It is as much a literary hunting trip through the author?s life as a collection of riveting hunting stories, and is a must-have addition to any hunter?s library.
