6 x 9, 288 pgs, b&w photos and illustrations. Like its predecessor, the original Country Sports (2004), Country Sports II (2015), features near 100 essays of outdoor sport that range well beyond the usual “where-to-go” and “how-to-do-it” of the Hook & Bullet press. Sporting sharp opinion, insight, and the skills of a natural-born raconteur, the author trails his teen-aged son on a wilderness hunt to a quarter-mile shot at a mule deer buck; and, on a hunt for snowshoe hare, is saved from a killer blizzard by a clairvoyant Bassett. Elsewhere, the author takes on the fearsome, corporate-backed Hudson Institute in an organic farming debate, and the environmental movement for its failure to take on the issue of population growth in our own USA. He initiates, describes, and hunts with the prototype of a new breed of hunting hound; and fly fishes in Hemingway’s footsteps. And more!
