KIRKUS REVIEW

 A wholesome-looking Montana family enjoys several outings hunting together, demonstrating responsible, safe, and ``humane'' behavior in the field. Avoiding arguments about the morality of hunting animals, Patent allows the family members (particularly the father) to present their activities as good, clean family fun, asserting that most hunters are as responsible as they are. With this in mind, the book is expertly done: everyone obeys laws and acts courteously, while expressing concern for ecology (culling in the absence of predators), nutrition (wild game is less fatty and chemical-laden than commercial meat), and safety. Clear, expressive photos are very well keyed to the text. Given that its assumptions are widespread, the book deserves a place in most libraries. Index. (Nonfiction. 9-13)
