Hunting Booger Bottom : Life Lessons from the Field
Booger Bottom, in rural Georgia, has no road signs, no stoplights, no stores. Nobody knows how it got its name, whether from the mythical booger--part panther, part wild dog--that is rumored to have roamed there, or from the Feds ("boogers") who raided local moonshine stills during Prohibition. Today Booger Bottom's most famous product is Michael Waddell, one of the world's most accomplished hunters. Growing up in this wild land near the Chattahoochee River, Waddell was blessed with two great gifts: a wonderful father who stoked his passion for hunting, and endless time in which to pursue it. He eventually left the backwoods of Georgia to stalk elk, moose, caribou, wildebeest, eland, and everything in between, from Alaska to Africa. Mixing Waddell's best hunting stories with hilarious anecdotes about the people he's met along the way, "Hunting Booger Bottom" is a must-read for anyone who has ever wandered into the woods with "a stick and a string."
