SLJ Review

For beginning hunters, this series covers an impressive amount of ground. Hunting Arms acquaints readers with the best type of weapon for their hunt, from rifles (plus their various equipment and ammunition) to bows and the different types of arrows. Hunting Safety, Licensing, and Rules encourages novice hunters to do ample research before embarking on their first hunting trip and to learn survival skills in case of emergencies. With QR codes linking to YouTube videos that illustrate key points, text-dependent questions, and further research suggestions, each section is filled with dynamic extras. Much information overlaps from one book to the next, with the exception of Preparing and Enjoying a Meal You Hunted, which expertly describes the steps in field dressing, butchering, and cooking wild game, plus living off the land by foraging wild foods. VERDICT If hunting-related collections are light, this series will beef it up.
