Reviews - What do customers think about Poachers and Poaching - Knowledge Never Learned in Schools?

Ever caught a phesant for dinner?  Sep 24, 2008
This very informative book tells how the masters of the game could consistantly put food on table.
This book goes further than teaching the reader how to trap small animals and catch a fish on the sly it tells how the true hunter will watch game and read their patterns of behavior more than they will actually spend on the hunt.
Reading this book will teach that luck plays no part in a successful hunt you just have to read the signs that are right infront of you.
