Hunting Birds: The Lives and Legends of the Pine County Rod, Gun, Dog and Social Club by Jerry Johnson

I guess it could be argued that the narrator of this tale takes his own sweet, round about time to get down to the story at hand.

But that would be the argument of someone who goes bird hunting just to kill things.

Would I recommend it? Yes.

 

Also, Jerry Johnson has an excellent blog at Dispatches from a Northern TownHead over and check it out. Bells and Whistles is a great place to start, though you might need a Kleenex!

      Well thanks! And I really enjoyed the book. I was trying to describe it to a cousin…. “I know these people… well not know them, but I know them… you know? ” Awesome characters and laugh out loud funny… though my husband (he of the duck hunting, versatile dog) didn’t perhaps thinks parts were quite as hilarious as I did! :)
