The first i ever read was The Trappers Companion (a Harding Book) it was my neighbors: the first one I purchased was Science of Trapping by Elmer Krepps (also a Harding book) followed by Tales of Wilderness Trapper (Neil Lindsey)

Same Rick Jamison that sued Winchester over the Short Mags?

Didn't know he was a trapper. Learn something every day.


My first actual book was probably Hawbakers. Followed by about 150 others... grin
