Book Review - Predator Calling with Gerry Blair

Every once in a while you read something that entertains, enlightens, and makes you want to do something. This sadly doesn't happen often. However, when I read Predator Calling With Gerry BlairI felt all three of those things. I also felt them the second and third time I read this book. It is, without question, the best hunting book I have ever encountered.

My well read copy

With tongue-in-cheek humor Blair goes through the basics of calling coyote, fox, raccoon, and many other predators. He also explains more complex strategies for each of these animals, all the while weaving exciting hunting stories throughout.

My favorite running joke is the 10 gauge shotgun named Moose Dick that he uses. I have never had an interest in owning a 10 gauge, but now I want one. My only problem is I can't come up with a name as good as Moose Dick for it!

Don't get me wrong, this book is not just humorous, it is cover to cover instruction. Every time I pick it up I can't wait until fox season rolls around. I was not paid to do this review. I just really enjoy this book.
