Certifiably psychotic guides, angry knife wielding natives, feces chucking primates, hallucinogenic drugs, Hemingway’s incensed niece, and breakaway jungle toilets are just a few of the trials and tribulations author Gayne C. Young faced during his first few years as an outdoor writer. Join this natural born – and, yes albeit hard to believe, professionally trained – raconteur as he travels the Texas swamps and brush country, African veld, rainforests of Papua New Guinea, and the Yucatán Jungle in search of adventure, excitement, and his next beer.
“Humor is extremely hard to write. I know because I can’t do it. Gayne Young can. Combining humor with good hunting stories is even more difficult. Gayne Young can do that, too!“ Craig Boddington, Executive Field Editor, Intermedia Outdoors
