X Treme Muzzleloading

X-Treme Muzzleloading Fur, Fowl and Dangerous Game with Muzzleloading Rifles, Smoothbores and Pistols Go with acclaimed writer Wm. Hovey Smith as he factually, and sometimes humorously, relates the successes and failures of his half-century of muzzleloading hunts in North America, Europe and Africa with everything from Japanese matchlocks to in-line rifles. Although some nice animals are taken, this book is more about examining the guns and how to make them effective game killers than a recounting of one man’s hunts. Detailed information about the guns and loads and a collection of his wild-game recipes adds to the usefulness of the book. Many of his recipes have been featured on his radio show, “Hovey’s Outdoor Adventures,” on WebTalkRadio.net, and his squirrel dishes were broadcast by the B.B.C. to their worldwide audience.

Hunting the First State

Perfectly situated on the eastern seaboard between the Chesapeake Bay to the west and the Delaware River, Delaware Bay, and Atlantic Ocean to the east, Delaware has proven to be a hunting paradise for local sportsmen. For centuries, outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen have harvested the natural riches offered by the wild game that inhabit Delaware's deciduous forests, salt and freshwater marshes, and cultivated crop fields. Common game, such as white-tailed deer, Canada geese, and varied species of ducks have been targeted by the majority of Delaware hunters, but woodcock, quail, snow geese, crows, squirrels, and rabbits are also plentiful in Delaware and provide Delaware sportsmen with hours of hunting enjoyment each season. Join Delawarean Steven Kendus as he uses his hunting wisdom, experience, and research to preserve Delaware's hunting legacy by sharing important history, tactics, locations, tips, and tricks associated with Delaware hunting.
