Like that earlier grouse hunter Aldo Leopold, Mark Parman takes to the woods when the aspens are smoky gold. Here, in an evocative almanac that chronicles the early season of the grouse hunt through its end in the snows of January, Parman follows his dog through the changing trees and foliage, thrills to the sudden flush of beating wings, and holds a bird in hand, thankful for the meal it will provide. Distilling twenty seasons of grouse hunting into these essays, he writes of old dogs and gun lust, cover and clear cutting, climate change, companions male and female, wildlife art, and stumps. A Grouse Hunter's Almanac delves into the mind of a hunter, exploring the Northwoods with an eye for more than just game.

"Notable and quotable. Parman stakes out original territory and provides a vivid snapshot of the Northwoods."--John Motoviloff, author of Wisconsin Wildfoods: 100 Recipes for Badger State Bounties

"Extremely rich and detailed. Parman puts forth original and genuine experiences."--Richard Yatzeck, author of Hunting the Edges

"Notable and quotable. Parman stakes out original territory and provides a vivid snapshot of the Northwoods."--John Motoviloff, author of "Wisconsin Wildfoods: 100 Recipes for Badger State Bounties"


"Regardless of whether you hunt grouse, or not, with or without a dog, carry a 28-gauge or double shotgun, there's something in this hunter's almanac for all who enjoy autumns in the north."--Jerry Davis, syndicated outdoors columnist


"Extremely rich and detailed. Parman puts forth original and genuine experiences."--Richard Yatzeck, author of "Hunting the Edges"


"Parman writes with deep knowledge of his craft, and a refreshingly mature treatment of his readers: he does not spoon-feed definitions and how-to lessons. Instead we learn as we move through the hunt with the master hunter and the dog, feeling the woods, picking up the language of hunting, and in the end, somehow knowing the aspen forests of Wisconsin better than we may even know our backyard."--Gabriela Worrel, "ForeWord"
