          Comments about A Man Made of Elk: Stories, Advice, and Campfire Philosophy from a Lifetime of Traditional Bowhunting:

          The author is able to take ordinary elk hunting stories and weave in his views of woodsmanship and philosophy. This book stands above nearly every other bowhunting book I have. I simply could not put it down and I am looking forward to reading it several times. The author is serious and funny at the same time. His wisdom comes through in a way that is enertraining and convincing. I really think that traditional bowhunter would love the book whether they are going to hunt elk or not. Peterson is just one of those few individuals that I really have respect for without ever having met him. He possesses keen senses and common sense wisdom. It is a profoundess and similar style found in rare authors like Dean Torges or other favorites

            I can't adequately express how much I loved this book.

            This book is enjoyable for its great hunting stories but more importantly for its spiritual elements. Mr. Petersen is a very eloquent and articulate writer that brings you along with him into the woods and sits you down next to his campfire.

            I am going to purchase more copies for friends and family.

              This book will reach down and touch one's heart as it takes you through the forest in search of the Wapiti. The kind of book that draws a reader in to return to a time that touches all senses of a bowhunter in search of such a majestic, Elk!! Must read!!

                  It was hard for me to put this book down once I starter the first read. A Man Made of Elk will be an annual read for me. Definately a must read for those interested in elk hunting public lands in the increasingly automated wild west.

                    As an aspiring elk hunter I could ask for a better place to start my study. You really feel like you are absorbing information that fathers pass to sons. Funny, imformitive, serious, and not so serious...it's pefect and makes me want to go looking for Elk. He shares a philosphy that all hunters could benifit from.

                      Dave Petersen has given us enormous helpings of food for thought over the years. He doesn't back away from hot-button issues like ATV and technology abuse, while at the same time sharing the small and not-so-small treasures he finds in the mountains of Colorado. This volume is a collection of (mostly) essays that have appeared elsewhere, but it does not disappoint or cease to delight the reader who may have read these bits before. My favorite Petersen book remains ELKHEART, but this one is a close second.

                        I have read 3 of Peterson"s books and this is by far the best. We aren't lucky enough to have Elk in TAS but it is still a must read.
