I have Conover's "Snow Walker's Companion". Do you know whether "The Winter Wilderness Companion" is much different from it?

No Dale, I don't know whats different. It sounds like he toned down his anti- "Leave no Trace" ethic a bit, and his "the old way is best" philosophy, and also added a chapter on wilderness snowmobiling.

Sheep and Sheep Hunting by the late Jack O'Connor.
Also, the Art of Hunting Big Game in North America, also by O'Connor.

Kirt Darner has fallen in disgrace but his book on hunting trophy mule deer is helpful.

Jim Zumbo's book, Hunt Elk, taught me that the trick in hunting elk is finding the buggers, a perhaps obvious lesson that took me a while to learn.

Finding Late Season Elk by Mike Lapinski.

A book called "Hunt Colorado" by Chuck Epperson. Gave me a lot of ideas about places to hunt. Wish I still had it.

"Sheep Hunting in Alaska" by Tony Russ (first place I ever heard about Kifaru Tipis)
"Death In The Long Grass" by P.H. Capstick. About as politically incorrect as humanly possible, but still entertaining.
