Hunting season is quickly approaching and I spent part of this afternoon reading up on upland hunting. I naturally got distracted by reading up on bird dogs instead, which then led me to a series of books by the author William Bruce Leffingwell. The books which are available to read online, were written in the late 1800’s and covered a wide range of topics in hunting, fishing, and sportsmanship. It’s interesting to see that basic field techniques and tricks that we learned as kids from our fathers seem to be mostly the same as they were for our great great grandfathers. Included in the books were also a number of great illustrations.
