I'm reading Hunting the Hard Way by Howard Hill and find it very interesting. It is mostly a collection of some of his most memorable hunts with each chapter dedicated to a new animal. It reads with a great voice, almost like your sitting around a campfire swapping stories with him.

I'm about halfway through my 3rd reading of BAREBOW by Dennis Dunn. It's a great read.

For hunting specifically, anything by David Petersen.

hunting, outdoors or nature related:
x2 on Kroeber (Ishi)
Wendell Berry -- The Unsettling of America, others
Gary Snider -- The Practice of the Wild, others
Paul Shepard -- Coming Home to the Pleistocene
Daniel Quinn -- Ishmael
Edward Abbey -- Desert Solitaire
Jon Young -- What the Robin Knows
Jon Young, Tiffany Morgan -- Animal Tracking
Traditional Bowyer's Bible -- all
Paul Kingsnorth -- Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist

Most of those are ones I've read or re-read in the last year or so. So they're more top-of-mind but I'm sure there are others I can't think of at the moment. Those are the ones that are at least somewhat related to hunting, archery & the outdoors.

Books on Audible are a fun way to "read" while driving to/from hunting spots. I have 2 hours each way to kill and I get sleepy fast in cars -- always have. Books keep me awake and I can finish a short one in the 4 hours a single trip requires.

Any of Don Thomas's books are must reads for trad hunters

If you enjoy Hemingway, not hunting, but For Whim the Bell Tolls is a must
