This is a good book to sit and peruse when you have idle moments, the "tips" are all only about a paragraph long. These tips are time-tested bits of advice from experienced elk hunters regarding such practical issues as clothing, gear, handling the meat, etc. They may not all be applicable to your situation, but if you find just one tidbit that makes your hunt easier, safer, or more enjoyable, it's worth the price of the book.
Good for its purpose

If you're looking for a comprehensive guide to elk hunting, this isn't it! On the other hand, if you just want to spend some time looking through the thoughts and ideas of other elk hunters, buy this book.Yes, some of the suggestions are contradictory. That's because this is a compilation of ideas from many different people. Ask three different hunters the best way to take an elk and you'll probably get five different answers! And all five of them are in this book.For me, this is the perfect "bathroom book." You know, the one you can pick up and glance through when you've got nothing else to do. You don't have to start at the beginning and read through to the end. Open it to any page and see what another hunter has to say.Especially considering the very reasonable price, I definitely recommend this book.
good tips over and over

Over all this book has some very good tips but at the same time can be repetitive in contents. you will also have to use your judgement on what tips you want to try this season. Some are good, some are differnt, and some well you will just have to read the book. over all this book was a good read and I will try some of the new and interesting ways to hunt, track, and care for my game.
