"When it comes to telling a hunting or fishing story - a Maine hunting and fishing story - Dave O’Connor is the Crown Royal of outdoor writers. The good stuff. His recollections of time spent on the water, or in the woods with the Ole Man have been entertaining Northwoods Sporting Journal readers for years. Huntin’ & Fishin’ With the Ole Man is a "heap of tales from the Maine Outdoors," 42 wonderful chapters that ring with authenticity and Downeast essence."
–V. Paul Reynolds, Northwoods Sporting Journal
"Dave O'Connor's stories are pure fiction, but they are packed with folksy wisdom, especially when told by the Ole Man"
––Bill Bushnell, Kennebec Journal
