    Default Jim McAnn's book

    Jim (or anyone else) do you know if any stores in Anchorage stock your Upland Hunting in Alaska book?

    I know that the Fred Meyer in Eagle River does I think it would be safe to assume that any of them would. I also know that Sportsmans Warehouse carries it. I am just finishing the last few pages now and I really enjoyed it and found it to be very helpful

    Thanks. If I can't find it at Freddy's I will order it from here. Sorry for the misspelling.

    I've also seen it at every Carrs in town, usually with all books at 20-25% off retail. It's a good one, you'll want your own copy.

    I think I picked up the last copy at Sportsmans warehouse in Anch a few weeks ago. Haven't seen it restocked yet. Definatly worth looking for, even my son who doesn't like reading that much thinks its a great book.

    Thanks for the interest in my humble book! It's found in all the places mentioned by others and wherever cheap beer and dirty magazines are also sold, but the best place to buy it is on this very website! I love doing the research for books and magazine articles and I'm working on another book (two, actually, but only one deals with hunting) these days.

    Regards,

    Jim

    Seeing that the question has been answered now, I wonder if I can hijack....???.....lol

    Speaking of books, I do have a few of them sold here, but I'm due for another good read. What are some of your favorites guys???.......of course other than Alaska's Wolf Man.......which imo so far was the absolute best.

    Thanks......

    Mr. McCann, I was reading through some of the ptarmigan chapters a few days ago and I don't think I read anything about what you did before you had pointing dogs. Did you walk around and try to flush them like the rest of us back then?

    Before the Brittanys I had Goldens, tantamount to just walking around and kicking up birds. But I did spend most of my life as a real predator and hunted grouse and ptarmigan on my own. I'm not such a good predator these days 'cause I have the dogs.

    Bought the book and it is a good read! Hopefully with some of the information it contains, I will be less of a disappointment to my dog.

    Lagopus,

    Thanks for purchasing my book, and I hope it helps you greatly. I'm sure your dog already thinks you are the smartest and most wonderful person in the world. Best of luck to both of you in your upcoming adventures. Please post often of your upland hunting adventures.

    Jim

    I have nothing against aimlessly wandering through the woods for a few hours, but the dog thinks that there should be a bit more of a purpose to these expeditions.
