The Compact Book Of Hunting, ed. Jim Rikhoff

The title says it all, especially “Compact,” at only 93 pages. I’m not a hunter but I can’t imagine this being more than an introduction to the hobby given the number of photos included… lots of old dudes in funny hats next to animal carcasses.

A paperback original first edition. Illustrated with photos throughout.
