Meet the Crazy Old Coot on December 6


Meet the Crazy Old Coot  is the theme of my book signing session Saturday, December 6, 2 – 3:30 p.m. at Dragonfly Books, 112 West Water Street, Decorah, Iowa.

Hope to meet with all my friends, readers of my books and blog essays, former students, and everyone who enjoys literature of the hunting and shooting sports. Stop by for a cup of coffee and some lively conversation. It’s a rare opportunity to meet an authentic Crazy Old Coot.

I will be signing copies of my books, Hunting Birds and Crazy Old Coot. If you enjoy stories about bird dogs, bird guns, and the spirit and camaraderie of the hunting life, you will want copy of each for your library. The books are now available at Dragonfly Books.

See you Saturday, December 6.

    I just read your book Crazy Old Coot and really enjoyed it. I can’t say that I fall into that category yet, but one day I am sure I will. I started bird hunting by accident a few years ago and am absolutely in love with it. I don’t love the number of birds I hit or even see, rather the desire of my dogs to locate them. I run GSP and am amazed on what they are able to do. I wish I could get on wild birds where I live, but they are just no longer found in my area, I should have been born 40 years earlier. Well the one thing I read at the end of your books hit my belief right on spot, regardless of anything else we all need to get the next generation involved in the outdoors. I have always been involved in the outdoors and take every opportunity to get kids involved in it also. I wish you luck and great success in the field, but remember the fun of the hunt is taking in all the beauty that surrounds you, not the number of birds in the bag, or the size of the rack on that buck you take.

    • Bryan – glad you enjoyed reading “Crazy Old Coot.” You will someday join the Crazy Old Coot Association; it’s just a matter of time. Wild birds are scarce since the ethanol boondoggle wiped out CRP — even in Iowa and South Dakota. Good to hear you work with youth groups to get young hunters started. It is a huge challenge to keep their interest when places to hunt are so few and chances of bagging game are so slim. For a kid, a huge part of “success” on a hunt is a cottontail or a squirrel in the game vest. Best wishes for your time afield in the new year.
