Audible Editor Reviews

In the introduction to A Hunter’s Fireside Book Gene Hill sets himself up as an everyman, someone who you could trade a little bourbon whiskey back and forth with, someone "who’s a lot like you". Ray Childs, who performs this audiobook, has the voice of this person; the warm and gravelly voice of a person you could sit in a duck blind with and trade tales over cold coffee. Hill has a way of picking out the details of the joys of a hunter who might more aptly be called a naturalist or outdoorsman. If you find yourself, like Hill, working too much and yearn for a campfire and a good talk about the outdoors and the simple pleasures of a fine shotgun you’ll have a good friend in this audiobook.

Not much about hunting

The author is more of a drinking, tie wearing, gun range yuppie. I am a hunter & spend a lot of time in the woods & have listened to better books more about being in the woods and hunting game. This book is focused more about accumulating guns & how to sneak them & going to the shooting range with his buddies around his wife. He drinks and smokes when he goes hunting, it's no wonder he doesn't have many stories about getting game. Wild life can see and smell him coming for miles. This book is not much hunting stories, but a lot of pipe smoking, bourbon, & how he constantly gets his guns modified or misses shots with his buddies. Likely because he sucks as a hunter. The narrator is too old school for my taste as well. He reads too slow (i set the settings to speed him up), & monotone. He's terrible at the punch lines at the end of a funny story. I would have given this one star but it got 2 because there were a couple of funny stories.
