By Mark Parman

Like that prior grouse hunter Aldo Leopold, Mark Parman takes to the woods while the aspens are smoky gold. the following, in an evocative almanac that chronicles the early season of the grouse hunt via its lead to the snows of January, Parman follows his puppy during the altering timber and foliage, thrills to the surprising flush of thrashing wings, and holds a fowl in hand, grateful for the meal it's going to offer. Distilling twenty seasons of grouse looking into those essays, he writes of previous canines and gun lust, disguise and transparent slicing, weather swap, partners female and male, natural world artwork, and stumps. A Grouse Hunter's Almanac delves into the brain of a hunter, exploring the Northwoods with a watch for greater than simply game.

"Notable and quotable. Parman stakes out unique territory and gives a bright picture of the Northwoods."—John Motoviloff, writer of Wisconsin Wildfoods: a hundred Recipes for Badger nation Bounties

"Extremely wealthy and particular. Parman places forth unique and actual experiences."—Richard Yatzeck, writer of looking the Edges
