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.
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..
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.
I just got back from my elk trip to Colorado and must say that I learned quite a bit about hiking in that one trip. I researched all I could on the internet and thought I was prepared going out. For the most part I was but I want to pass on a few major things I learned that helped me drastically!
1. Pack light. I know this may sound like common sense but believe me. After reading everyone's advice on what you need to pack, chances are your pack will end up weighing more...
