Searching for Sasquatch: Crackpots, Eggheads, and Cryptozoology (Palgrave Studies in the History of Science and Technology)How does science treat evidence from the edges? This fresh and entertaining look at the search for Sasquatch concerns more than just the startling and controversial nature of monsters and monster hunting in the late twentieth century, but the more important relationship between the professional scientists and amateur naturalists who hunt them—and their place in the history of science. The traditional heroic narrative of monster-hunting situates mainstream, academic scientists (the eggheads) as villains rejecting the existence of anomalous primates and cryptozoology as unworthy of study. It gives a privileged place to passionate amateur naturalists (the crackpots) who soldier ...

Failure to do so may result in serious injury or even death. Many hunters now use multiple hunting stands and already have a full body safety harness. To prevent each hunter from having multiple safety harnesses and to keep this stands price to a minimum, we do not include a safety harness. However, we will add it at cost if you do not have one (purchase within our store). By purchasing this tree stand, you are agreeing to use a safety harness while climbing to your stand or sitting in the stand! Never consume alcohol or drugs while using this product! Never climb a tree with a gun, use a rope instead to raise your unloaded weapon with the lever/ chamber open!

The Field & Stream Hunting Optics Handbook: An Expert's Guide to Riflescopes, Binoculars, Spotting Scopes, and Rangefinders
Hunters often spend more money on optical equipment than they do on rifles, and yet they usually know very little about "glass." Binoculars, rifle scopes and range finders cost a minimum of $1,000 each. That consumer wants to ensure he's spending money on the right products. This book informs the reader what kind of performance to look for in optics, depending on where they're going and what they're hunting. Good binoculars and scopes vastly improve a hunter's focus and range. Specific products are reviewed and presented here - with photos - in an easy-to-understand shoppers' guide that will vastly improve the hunting experience. Thomas McIntyre is a contributing editor at "Field & Stream," where he regularly tests new optics. He lives in Wyoming.
