Author Richard Smith, Bear Hunting: The Ultimate Reference, signs his book at Horizon Books.
The more you know about the animal you’re hunting, the better your chances are of having a successful hunt. Learning about the life history, habits, and behaviors of black bears is important for bear hunters because the animals are different from most other popular big-game quarry–and there’s a lot of false information out there. This fully illustrated guide covers baiting basics, spotting, stalking, and
calling black bears, as well as where to hunt, snow tracking, training bear dogs, and hound hunting–making it a valuable resource for the novice and expert alike. Loaded with practical advice from a noted hunting expert, this book not only explains the best techniques for the hunter, it also describes the behaviors and actions of the hunted.
