A Great Read

Here at the Birdhunter significant effort is expended to produce the mediocre level of writing that you see in this blog.  We are alright with that because the point here is the photography. But if you want to read great bird hunting stories written by fellows who know how to write then checkout this terrific e-book from the guys over at the Mouthful of Feathers blog. It is well worth the $5 and can be bought HERE.
