I see some folks posting that are new to bowhunting and some even new to hunting at all. I learned by reading and most of this from the early days of Bowhunter Magazine when MR James was in charge. These are in my library and a few are not bowhunting books.

and hey speaking about magazines - my favorite is the PBS magazine. Probably most of you have heard of the Professional Bowhunters Society - if you haven't the associate membership is worth it for the magazine alone and there is MUCH more for anyone dedicated to pursuing bowhunting and ethics.

Couple a more books.

The Art and Appreciation of Trophy Bowhunting
Bob Kirschner

be expert with Map & Compass
Bjorn Jkellstrom

Hunting the American Wild Turkey
Dave Harbour

Dave Harbours book is not about bowhunting turkeys but the original and the best. He also wrote this book of hunts many of which took place on public land so members here should find it worth reading and owning.

Bob Kirschners book might seem dated by todays standards but I think it is valuable for new hunters to look at how several different successful hunters develop a plan.

Map & Compass. Although we don't even allow folks to hunt with us if they don't have a GPS - map & compass skills are essential to good woodsmanship. Declination - orienteering, bisections - triangulation's - how to work off a map - read maps - confidently traveling accurately Day OR Night - are all covered.
