The Ultimate Guide to Small Game and Varmint Hunting: How to Hunt Squirrels, Rabbits, Hares, Woodchucks, Coyotes, Foxes and More

According to the book description of The Ultimate Guide to Small Game and Varmint Hunting: How to Hunt Squirrels, Rabbits, Hares, Woodchucks, Coyotes, Foxes and More, “This book includes detailed natural histories of every important small game species, such as squirrels, rabbits and hares, woodchucks, prairie dogs, coyotes, foxes, bobcats and more. Hunting tactics for all species are covered, including how to locate squirrels by their feeding sites, stalking rabbits with the stop-and-go method, walking abandoned railroad tracks and floating rivers for woodchucks, and calling coyotes with everything from electronic calls to hand-held mouse squeakers. The Ultimate Guide to Small Game and Varmint Hunting is a compendium that no serious hunter should be without. With field-tested advice on which guns, ammunition and optics to use for different species and conditions, as well as tips on calls and other equipment, and a special section on cleaning and cooking small game animals, The Ultimate Guide is ideal for beginner or expert, carrying practical advice that you can use to take more game, whether you hunt in Alaska or Texas, New York or Florida. Special chapters on hunting ethics and firearms safety round out this important and useful how-to book. H. Lea Lawrence has been taking photographs and writing about the outdoors for more than 30 years. With credits in most major outdoor magazines, he has written half a dozen books, including The Ultimate Guide to Bowhunting and A Hemingway Odyssey: Special Places in His Life.”

One reader of The Ultimate Guide to Small Game and Varmint Hunting: How to Hunt Squirrels, Rabbits, Hares, Woodchucks, Coyotes, Foxes and More said, “This book is very informative. If you are just starting out, or considering trying you luck with a critter that maybe you have less experience with, then you will find this book very helpful. Chapter 12 is on firearms safety, 13 is on hunting ethics, and 14 (the last chapter) covers processing game and includes some interesting game recipes. I think there is a little something in this book for everyone that enjoys hunting and someone just beginning to take up hunting is sure to benefit the most. My teenage daughters recently expressed an interest in hunting (much to my surprise) and I bought this book hoping to find material that would cover a wide range on hunting topics. I hunt, but until this year never considered that my girls would have an interest in hunting and I neglected the opportunity of starting their hunting education earlier. I think this book is just what I was looking for and will be a great way to get them started, along with the basic hunters certification course and actual time in the field with dad. I highly recommend!”
