Just wondering what books any one reads? I just got done with Sammy Hagar "RED" and read it in 2 days. Very good autobiogrphy and am now reading " if this isn't jerky, than what did I just eat" from Bill Heavey. And just picked up "In The Sancuary Of Outcasts" An auto biography of a mans life behind bars for 4 years.

What books did/do you read or authers you enjoy

R_C, what I’d recommend is google something like ruffed grouse doctoral dissertation or ruffed grouse masters thesis.  Maybe add a specific tag like reproduction or ecology or whatever trips ya.  There’s a lot out there for free or relatively low cost.  Obviously, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan universities turn out a lot of great stuff, but some other schools do to.  

Good luck and happy reading

Frifishfry I have everything he has ever written,  in my opinion the best entertaining outdoor writer. My son got me Havilah Babcock,  My health is better in November. Just starting it.

For the purposes of this forum, I would recommend the books of outdoor writer Gordon Macquarrie. There are many stories of fishing and hunting in Northern Wisconsin.

Lake Michigan   by R.G. Plumb

A old book i purchased at a rare book auction...It was given to Joseph Napiezinski upon his retirement from his job as lighthouse keeper in Manitowoc.

Joseph Napiezinski served as keeper of Manitowoc Breakwater Lighthouse from 1911 to 1941

Great stories of shipwrecks at Deaths Door  to the construction of the Sturgeon Bay ship canal and the rescue of navy aviators in 1919.

The book was a gift given by Edwin Schuette whose family owned the Schuette Bros. Co. and the bank in Manitowoc and he had one of the largest marine photo collections in the world.

Grouse Hunters Guide by Dennis Walrod

Some science here but 95% "entertainment"

Anyone know of good grouse books with mostly biology focused.  ??  I mean we all know that grouse like young poplar so something with some depth
