    Ithaca, I can't believe some of the stuff that guy did! I don't know how he kept his bladder and bowels from spontaneously emptying on a daily basis. Absolutely amazing. If you haven't already, check out his others. I've read "The Temple Tiger" and "The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag". Riveting, to say the least.

    Davycrockett, I have my uncle's copy (1948ish) of Jim Corbett's Man-Eaters of Kumaon. What a remarkable book and an even more remarkable man.Mr. Corbett will always be one of my Hero's. There is so much great reading you can find in those older books, and they are fun to look for too.

    I just finished reading three of Jim Corbett's books about hunting man-eaters in India. HIGHLY recommend those. Also recently red through the "My Side of the Mountain" trilogy and am currently involved in the autobiography of Chuck Norris.

    Just started Jim Harrison's early novel, Wolf, and also have A Good Day to Die to read after that. Pretty soon it'll be time to re-read all of his Brown Dog novellas, too.

    Micropterus24, you probably know about MacQuarrie's "Stories of the Old Duck Hunters," but if not, you should head to your library or Amazon.com. In my opinion, MacQuarrie was right up there with Gene Hill and Ben East.

    I've been reading a lot of dog training books right now. It's not that I am putting their advice to use. It is just interesting to compare trainers/handlers styles. Also Steve Chapman has a great book. I believ it is called A Look at Life from a Deer Stand.

    I'm really enjoying "Fly Fishing with MacQuarrie" its a collection of stories by Gordon MacQuarrie who was an outdoors writer from Wisconsin in the 1920s-1956 when he died. The stories are funny, and down to earth. MacQarrie makes you feel like you're in the stream, which is the closest I've been in too long now.

    I love to read the KJB faithfully and repetitively all year, not just seasonally. For lighter reading, I just log on to F&S. And since I have been posting on this site, I have often had to do a little serious reading from the old Webster Dictionary to help with my spelling. But reading the dictionary has not helped at all with my many typos and to be perfectly honest, its plot is awfully hard to follow also.

    It's old and a bit dated, but I still love Outdoor Life's Deer Hunting Book. It's a collection of great stories with my favorite being Horace Hinkley's big Maine whitetail. Jack O'Conner, and other big names have more than one piece, but the amatuers write some very interesting stuff. I guess I like it so much because these men (in the day of buck only shooting) were not antler crazy.

    I must be different but this is the time of the year that I start reading the Good book from cover to cover again. I throw in a couple of Vietnam aviation books that I have acquired over the years.

    Every couple years i reread some of my favorites..."A River Runs Through It", "Into the Wild", "Into Thin Air", "The Perfect Storm" "Flags of Our Fathers"... maybe i'm too cheap to buy new books!. Hope all is well in Ohio. Still chasing deer with a bow here in late Jan. What'd you boys shoot?
