    I find it very informative to read these older books from the leaders in ballistics and hunting This book was published in 1927 from one of the best ballistics experts of the time Col Whelen favored the 6.5 and the 270 Winchester even though many then or now would steer most hunters away from them because nothing but the best placed bullet will drop wildlife quickly It s also quite interesting to read as the author will slip his regulatory view point in from time to time I wonder how they would feel today about what seemed innocent and reasonable then Col Whelen obviously didn t think the regulations being proposed then would amount to what is being put forth as reasonable now.Very good briefs on the animals habits and woodcraft of the day and still very applicable today As Col Whelen has said of the hunting articles of the day so it is in today s articles Not enough about the habits and mannerisms of the wildlife and too much about the kill Col Whelen does a good job of describing the wildcraft of the wildlife to better help the understanding of our natural resources.

    Lt Col Townsend Whelen he would eventually be raised to Colonel was a master outdoorsman and hunter, and this book, written in the 1920s is nice peek at a time long goneThe animals mentioned have not changed that much although he says at one point that deer have been wiped out in Delaware That may have been true then, but is not now but some really interesting info is in the chapters dealing with camping, the equipment, The soldier condemns most civilian footware in no uncertain terms though again, you have to keep in mind you reading advice almost a century oldWhelen was a big booster or hobnails in boots for mountain travel, and even gives you a pattern in which to nail them into your soles, and the type of hobnail toothere were two patterns, one good..one not so good..You MAY be able to still find a shoe repair place still open but I doubt they will be plentifully supplied with hobnails Nevertheless, the book is wonderfully enjoyable visit to the past, by a man who was a true expert woodsman

    A good reprint edition of an old classic on hunting and camping Whelen is one of the real dealold timers, who knew what he was doing, and designed his own gear as he saw ways to improve The Whelen leanto, Whelen knife, the improved cartridge designs bearing his name are all landmarks of a long and knowledgeable career.This is a good read, with some very solid information, even for our modern hunters and campers.
