Excerpt to Born to Hunt “Mule deer chose me early, both buck and doe, in the last week of the first Montana hunting season I could legally purchase a tag. I’d followed the grown men in years before, sometimes packing my Daisy Red Ryder, wondering why they didn’t shoot the deer across the valley when their rifles were so much more powerful than my BB gun. Then I started shooting rifles, first .22 rimfires and eventually .30 calibers of various hues, and with the conceit of youth (and the purchase of my first deer tag) dreamed of killing gray deer far across valleys.
It did not happen like that.”

As a companion book to “Life of the Hunt” this book continues to take the reader along on John’s hunts.
John’s thoughtful observations of not only the natural surroundings and game, but the guides, horses, cooks and entire experience are such that I feel that I’ve been along as an observer.
Absolutely recommended reading for any hunting library.
