Short but good read. Traditional Bowhunting

I haven't been feeling 100% the last few weeks and haven't been in the woods so I have been doing a bit of reading.

I heard that Clay Hayes had a Kindle book out on Amazon.
Mr. Hayes is a real deal Trad Bowhunter who believes in the time honoured pursuit of game through woodsmanship and hard work. Many hunters have become too dependant on gadgetry and tear up the country on their atv's. Clay Hayes takes hunting back to what it should be.

I know guys here in Newfoundland saying they are going to take up moose hunting when they get an atv. You don't need a $45000 truck and an atv to hunt big game. If you are someone like Mr. Hayes you don't even need a rifle for hunting. You don't even to have to buy a bow. (he makes his own)

As I wrote on my Amazon review,

 "Wonderful collection of essays and short stories about traditional bowhunting. If you are a hunter who loves the hunt for the sake of just being there,sensing everything, then you will love this book. Makes me want to hang up my rifle for the longbow."

If you are a woodsman you will appreciate this book

Pics above are mine not Mr Clayes


  1. I will have to check it out. Picking up a longbow has always been a refreshing outlet toward simplicity for me.

  2. I enjoy your blog. I found the link there at American Grouch
