Amazing Guide!

I have never been hunting, so learning the basics of hunting was well worth it. I'm sure that when I do hunt, I will know how to do it successfully. Thanks to this listen, I have learned about the preparation needed to hunt, as well as identify animals, understand local hunting laws, and dealing with different weather and terrains. It's a book that's well broken down into an easy-to-follow guide. Highly recommend to beginners wanting to make hunting their new sport!

Great introductory guide

I’ve never actually been hunting before, so I don’t know much about the process. What I will say, however, is that this audiobook breaks it all down into an easy-to-follow guide. It preps you for everything you’ll face out in the wilderness, including laws and regulations, challenging conditions and terrains, and wildlife of all kinds.

I like how it focused on safety and adhering to local laws. I think those are two things that beginners really need to hear. It was also cool to learn how to identify different animals based on their tracks. Though I’m not sure when I’ll put this information to use, it’s definitely interesting to have at my disposal!

Kudos to both the author and narrator.

A Great Primer for the New Hunter

This Simple Hunting Guide is written for anyone who is curious to see what it takes to begin a lifetime journey into the hunting world. Seasoned hunters probably will find this too basic for their needs, but you never know - learning/understanding and "going back to the basics" is never a bad thing. I really enjoy hearing new and differing perspectives on my favourite hobby. The Author, Pat Gatz is a First Nation Algonquin with over twenty years experience, so he definitely knows his stuff. I believe this is the first outing for "Hunting for Greatness!", I greatly look forward to listening to the next instalments in this series which I believe will get more into depth on the topics outlined during this basic guide. A great primer or refresher for the beginner and even intermediate hunter alike! A+ work and I'll highly recommend it to friends and family.

Brilliant for a Beginner

First, I have to say that the narration is so clean and easy to listen to. Now getting onto the content... As somebody who hasn't hunted before but likes the idea of giving it a go. This book has filled me with confidence because it covers many topics including survival skills which I found very helpful. Plus it gives you instructions on how to get a hunting license - this of course is a big deal. Lots of hunting tips and tactics I am looking forward to try, I recommend this to others...

Great for a complete newbie

I started this book with pretty much zero knowledge about hunting, and now I feel pretty well-educated. It's smartly organized and doesn't take for granted that you have any prior knowledge. Great narration as well. Perfect for a mid-level hunter who wants some tips, or someone looking to start from square one.

Great step by step guide

I’m such a fanatic of survival shows and was intrigued to learn real life survival tips. This book did not disappoint. Haven’t tried them yet but learned so much from this audio. Loved the stress on spending the time to properly prepare a d the tip on melting snow to supplement water rather than eating it like ice.

An incredible guide! love it

This is one of best and rarest book on this topic. Simply because a few people dedicate their time teaching this. Plus, many of those that teach are simply google researchers or new hunters with limited experience. Do not learn hunting from google. You could mess around. Learn form someone's experience. This is one of reasons I love this audio. The author speaks from his experience !!. The instructions to get your first hunting license is well simplified and detailed. He also provided guides on different types of weapons. Lots of secrets and tips!! I love it!

Amazing Hunting Guide!

This was the exact audiobook I was looking for in regards to a guide to hunting! It touched on so many topics I was unaware of such as tracking and scouting. It's really well-written and the narration is crisp and engaging. If you're a beginner to hunting or just interested in the subject, you must get this audiobook.

What an inspiring audiobook!

What an inspiring audiobook! I have been looking for a fitness routine for a young male I am working with that has a lot of energy. He needed a focus that is fun and energetic, and I really believe Tracking, Scouting and Survival Skills. This audiobook teaches you the basics of Tracking, Scouting, and Survival Skills and then moves on to many advanced drills that help improve your fitness, self-confidence and even prepares you for competition if that's what interests you.
