This photo from 1966 shows my father--Wyatt F. Raleigh Jr--and my grandfather--Thomas Joseph--at Camp Ge-Kay-Da on Big Lake in Ontario, Canada with a resounding catch of northern pike. My father was a WWII veteran: S1 U.S. Navy and knew how to do anything when it came to being on the water.
He's been gone since June 30, 1997 and I miss him every day.
But with all change comes a reminder: our fathers hunt and fish just like we do. They taught us to love the outdoors and each other with it just as they did. For those who still have their dad, here's reminder of just how you can return the love.
Give his love back in an old way- the gift of reading! The Hunter's Way is for everyone and especially dad. It's a great way to say I love you and let him know how much he taught you.
Nathan Unger- Wide Open Spaces contributing writer, Bulldawg Outdoors Blog, and Whitetail Guru Hunting Podcast:
“The Hunter’s Way pinpoints the heart of conservationists. With raw passion and genuine reflection, Raleigh illustrates the grit and marrow of avid hunter’s everywhere.”
Dave Ottman- Pro Staff at WOO Tungsten, Pro-Staff at Ardent and Pro-Staff at Enigma Fishing shared this:
“Hi Craig, just finished your book The Hunter's Way and just wanted to tell you that I loved it. I could relate to so many of the story's and feeling that you experienced. Now that I finished it I will donate it to our hunting camp in Redfield NY for my father and our two hunting buddy's to enjoy during their evenings after a days hunt. Thank you for capturing a true meaning of the hunt.”
Lifelong hunter and fisherman Mike Doering said,
“I just finished "The Hunter's Way." I am just writing to tell you that you did an outstanding job of communicating how I grew up as a hunter/fisherman and why I continue to have such a passion for these endeavors. I think your book communicates this beautifully!”
