Dr. Ken Nordberg's do-it-yourself Black Bear Baiting & Hunting Revised 2001 Edition

Dr. Ken Nordberg's Whitetail Hunter's Almanac 3rd Edition

Whitetail Hunter's Almanac, 3rd Edition: a guide to "mobile stand hunting" - using a series of stand sites to outfox today's stand-smart adult whitetails. The most valuable part of this book is its list of twenty-three stand sites (for elevated or ground-level stand hunting). Included are instructions for finding these sites, their descriptions and locations, positioning of stands, stand site preparations, best hunting periods, special precautions, approach trails and more

John Nordberg -- The key major topic in this book is "Mobile Stand Hunting." We use many different hunting techniques -- but Mobile Stand Hunting is the foundation for the majority of them. This book also quickly recaps the important information on the Rut Phases. The acronym "AGA" refers to areas of greatest activity. This book is packed with important information.
