Favorite Outdoor writers

Recommended Posts

Just wondering who everyone's favorites might be. I think for me it is Gordon Macquarrie for sure, some others in there too. Pat McManus. I guess I am secretly hoping someone can turn me on to some others in that same vein. I have read every Gordon Mac story at least 10 times.

Michael McIntosh, Gene Hill, and Charlie Waterman are favorites. Larry Brown's pheasant book was a good read. "A High Lonesome Call" by Richard Holthouser was excellent. Don't know if he wrote any others.

Of modern writer's I like John Barsness and David Petzal.  Based on interactions with him on another forum, Mr. Barsness is a very knowledgeable and down to earth fellow.

From those choices, sounds to me like you might enjoy Corey Ford.  Especially his old "Lower Forty" stories.

Thanks, Don.  But you've got me worried.  Stuck in there with a bunch of dead guys (except Holthouser)!

I enjoy many of the old writers for both information and entertainment. If I had to pick just one favorite--its Corey Ford.

His 'Lower Forty' stories are a treasure. In part because I can relate to the New Hampshire I know and love.

 

John Gierach is entertaining in much the same way...flyfishing with some bird hunting thrown in.
