I've been reading over and over again that most people from the lower 48 going to AK to live or hunt really don't understand the effort and planning it takes to pull off a hunt, so I decided to start my research now before our move to the Palmer/Wasilla area at the end of July.
One of the books I've been hearing is a must read for lots of initial information is the comprehensive hunting guide by Chirstopher Batin, but I can't figure out if his 4th edition (originally printed in 1985, and most recent reprinting in 2002) or his comprehensive guide printed in 1994 has the most up to date info. I know the dates are obvious, but I've realized over my college career that most of the revised editions of the textbooks I've been exposed to have almost imperceptible alterations. Anybody read both or just know which is the latest? Definitely won't say no to other suggestions but I'm pretty set on buying this book as well.
Sorry if this is a repeat post, but I couldn't find anything other than book suggestions on the forum (which I plan on using to beef up my library)
