    Unhappy Video's and books to think about next season

    The winter months I thoroughly enjoy reviewing the photo's,stories, and debates on this forum while thinking of the next season to come. I've been watching billy moles hunting adventures and reading his new book and I'm enjoying the hell out of both. I was curious what other people watch or read over the winter to pass the time while thinking about next season. What's your favorite hunting material to review or videos to watch?

    This winter I'm rereading a few classics:

    "Alaska Game Trails with a Master Guide; High adventure tales of fair chase with Alaska's first Master Guide - Hal Waugh."
    "Last of the Great Brown Bear Men"
    "Track of the Kodiak"

    The last 5 mentioned are my all time favorites - gotta read Wolf Man at least once a year.

    Really, a book about an undercover cop is your first choice towards thinking about hunting next season? Mmm.

    PacWest:

    I see your point that a detective story might not be the most motivating for the next hunting season. However, think about it this way: you get two hunts in one; while she hunts for evidence against the guides she's hunting animals. It's a well written book about how hard it is to enforce hunting regulations. It's suspenseful and an interesting perspective about fighting unethical hunting.

    Years ago I came across a copy of Alaskan Adventures the early years in soft copy and enjoyed it so much I now own the full series of books by Russell Annabel and would recommend it to anyone.I have found that many places he hunted and fished in Alaska and wrote about gave me an idea of going into and trying out myself and was a big help when first moving to Alaska.

    4merguide - Thanks for the recommendation for Alaska's Wolf Man. That was a great book about an iconic sourdough during an interesting and key time period in Alaska. Written by a very good writer.

    From out of the Yukon, by James H. Bond.

    It gives you a perspective about hunting and our pressure on the animals since the time we started moving into these lands. My copy was signed by the Author in 1949.

    Great way to start a book I thought...!!!
