First published in 1913, The Complete Sportsman's Encyclopedia is as essential a volume for the modern-day hunter and fisherman as it was at the turn of the century. Offering a full education in every aspect of the sporting life - from bait fishing and fly casting to big game hunting - Francis H. Buzzacott put down what he hoped would be a portable and "practical volume containing much information one in the woods would like, or ought to know." With sections that include "The Complete Camper's Manual," "The Complete Fisherman and Angler's Manual," "The Complete Hunter's and Sportsmen's Manual and Trapper's Guide," and "The Complete Big Game Hunter's Manual or the Rifle-Man's Guide," The Complete Sportsman's Encyclopedia covers a vast terrain of information in a concise, no-nonsense manner. Here Buzzacott explains: outfitting properly and thoroughly for fishing, hunting, or camping trips; reliable weather signs and how to read them; troubleshooting for fishermen and anglers; ducks, decoys, blinds, and dogs; trapping and tanning; loading and cleaning rifles and pistols; hunting deer, bear, and moose; invaluable hints and points for hunters; and much, much more. The splendid photographs and illustrations that adorn its pages render this volume as much a cherished fireside reader as it is a valued companion in the field. The Complete Sportsman's Encyclopedia is a wise compendium of good old-fashioned knowledge that will bring satisfaction to sportsmen for decades to come.
