More than fifty years of hunting and trapping adventures fill the pages of E. N. Woodcock’s autobiography.
Fifty Years a Hunter and Trapper begins with Woodcock as a young boy, learning to hunt and trap small game in the wild woods of Pennsylvania. Later he examines the merits of traps versus guns and tells of near escapes and exciting hunting trips to other parts of America. Detailing the hardships that accompany such a life, Woodcock is decidedly forward about his profession. But his voice never wavers in his obvious undying fondness for the outdoors and the adventure that it offers.
About the Author
Woodcock worked the “trap line” for more than a half-century, and was a faithful contributor to Hunter, Trader, and Trapper magazine for a decade. In his later years Woodcock became an advocate for more stringent hunting and trapping laws, and believed conservation was the answer to the declining population of all game animals. In his more than fifty years, Woodcock never hunted illegally or out of season.
