If there’s one thing we’ve all learned in the last year or so, it’s that we all need to be more self-sufficient.
What if civilization came to a halt, how would you provide for yourself and your family?
Well, we think that’s a much easier question to answer when you have a copy of Warren Hastings Miller’s classic The Boy’s Book of Hunting And Fishing.
A Product Of Its Time
It is worth noting that Mr. Miller meant no offense when he wrote this text, it was first published back in 1916 just as women were starting to campaign for suffrage.
So, while it says “Boys” on the front, it means everyone, really.
And if you can get past the title, inside you’ll find everything you ever needed to know about how to hunt and fish in the great outdoors (such as these awesome free campsites).
Final Thoughts On The Boy’s Book Of Hunting And Fishing
You don’t have to go off-grid to benefit from learning how to catch a black bass or how to care for a fishing rod.
We loved the chapter on living off the forest and the guide to setting up a basic tent could save your life in a zombie apocalypse.
Given the age of this book, it doesn’t feel at all dated – we think everyone ought to have a copy, this is a timeless guide to survival that even a boy can understand.
