THE BEE HUNTER by George Harold Edgell


Email this review


Bee hunting, according to the author, is fast becoming a lost art. He here gives it substance, not only as an ""art"" but as good sport, with tangible results in unique game-honey. He discusses the equipment, the proper clothing, the season when the honey flow is at peak. He then proceeds to the step by step process- spotting the honey bee, trapping some bees, setting the line, timing the departure and return, reestablishing the line, what to do when the tree is found. Brief and rather cursory dismissal of the distaff side- what to do with the honey when it is brought home. A very special item.
