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!

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.

Hunter Education

There is no skill more important when SHTF and knowing how to do it properly to keep the wildlife continuing to reproduce is just as important. This step-by-step guide introduces acquiring a license, basic gear, and survival equipment. Another great asset is how to get out potentially hazardous situations easily. It even covers butchering your catch. Definitely worth the listen!

Great for beginners!

I am very happy that I had the opportunity to listen to this book. We just moved to KY and we know NOTHING about hunting. Some of my kids friends hunt and have asked them to go along. I have been very uncomfortable with the thought of them going out and not knowing anything. After listening to this book, I feel that I can better prepare my kids so that they can go with their friends. I will have them listen to this book as well but I highly recommend this book for anyone who knows NOTHING about hunting or is just starting to get into it.

Great place to start

I've always been interested in hunting on my own more seriously, instead of tagging along with more experienced friends and family.
This book is very detailed and well-organized, and covered every topic I didn't feel confident in handling myself.
I especially enjoyed the parts about tracking and scouting animals, would even my friends who don't hunt found interesting.
This book has everything you need to start taking survival hunting seriously, highly recommended.

The Whole Hunting Process Simplified!

I'm going hunting with my buddies in the summer and as a complete newbie, I must say that I was a little intimidated before I listened to this book.

Not only is this a simplified guide, it is also one of the more comprehensive hunting guides out there. It covers everything from crucial information about hunting tags and licenses to tracking game and even covers some basic survival skills for the backcountry.

I'm much more confident in my ability to support my hunting group, now that I've listened to this guide. Highly recommend!

Great for newbies and mid level hunters

This book is great for anyone who wants to get into hunting. It's well-organized and doesn't assume that you have any previous knowledge about the sport, making it easy enough even if you're starting with no experience at all! The narration also helps make sure things stay interesting while teaching newbies what they need to become expert marksmen as soon as possible - perfect timing, too, since winter always comes around sooner than expected every year.

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.
