About this Book:

Huntin’ and Fishin’ with the Ole Man is a beloved collection of humorous, fictional essays about hunting and fishing originally published by Maine Outdoors Publishing, but with limited circulation. The Islandport edition includes all-new material and introduces all the fun and characters to a wider audience. In stories like “Before You Bust a Cap” and “Rain Ain’t Nothin’ But Water” the Ole Man and company find themselves in plenty of pickles that require ingenuity, humor, outdoor know-how, and a lot of patience to endure. Huntin’ and Fishin with the Ole Man is sure to become a staple at camp or in the canoe, and come in handy when the snows come or the fish won’t bite. Just don’t laugh too hard or you may flip your boat!

–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
