Eastman Book - Elk Hunting In The West

I just finished Mike Eastman's elk hunting book. Has anyone else read it? He has some interesting ideas and tips on western elk hunting.

How do you feel about the Eastman videos, books and mags?

I have it and have read most of it. I enjoy Eastman's books, videos...etc. Another good one is David Long's Public Land Mulies also published by Eastmans.

I read it, i thought it was ok, probably my least favorite of all the eastman published books though. mike's book on high country mule deer was a little i better i thought. i would say my favorite eastman book is the one hiker mentioned by David Long. i also really enjoyed Cameron Hanes' backcountry bowhunting:a guide to the wild side.

Great - do you have a better suggestion for an "elk specific" book that I should check out?

The cameron hanes book has a good section on elk if you're into bow hunting, i've also read a section of "Elk hunting 101" by Jay Houston. It's not too bad, might be worth checking out. it's not an eastman book but still.. Think

Thanks - I'll check them out. I'm more of a reader rather than a video watcher...but are there any videos you suggest?

umm for purely elk, you can't go wrong with a primos truth series video made by primos hunting calls.

The Eastmans, as a whole are probably the most exsperianced and knowledgeable family there is when it comes to fair chase and public land hunting there is.
Davids book is another must have. If your thing is fair chase public land hunting, which most hunters are especially public land hunting everything they write or tape is worth a look.
