These Books Deliver Goods for sportsmen.(SPORTS)(WEEKEND ATHLETE)


Byline: Gene Mueller, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

In a current onslaught of newly published books, three merit attention from readers not because they were written by potential Nobel Prize in Literature winners - far from it - but because the books deliver what they promised and that means a great deal for sporting people, such as hunters and anglers.

The Labrador Shooting Dog - by Mike Gould ($25, softcover, 287 pages, Clinetop Press, New Castle, Colo., www.clinetop.com) is as much a salute to the author, one of the best dog trainers in America, as it is about one of the most capable sporting dogs in the world, the labrador retriever.

Gould refers to them as shooting dogs, a good description for animals who thrive in the company of hunters through rain, sleet, snow or sun, willingly leaping into the water or charging through briars to retrieve game. There is plenty of talk about trials, breeding and configuration, all worthwhile subjects. But of special value are chapters about "Starting Your Puppy," "Introduction to the Gun" and "Formal Obedience," which certainly is not a problem with most labs.

You'll learn how to teach your pup to mark game, do proper field work, how to "fetch" that first bird - and it might even be something besides a duck or goose. Labradors, of course, can be great flushing dogs for all types of upland birds. Much else is covered, nothing is overlooked. If you plan on seeing your lab puppy grow into a competent hunting dog, you couldn't do any better than to listen to Gould's fine advice.

Turkey Hunting Tactics of the Pros - by Richard Combs ($24.95, hardcover, 240 pages, the Globe-Pequot Press, Guilford, Conn., www.globe-pequot.com) will show the new hunter how to stack up against one of the smartest game birds anywhere, the great American wild turkey. You'll read major chapters on turkey habits and behavior - must-learn items - during spring and fall seasons but also will be gently led through an often confounding array of proper gear, from shotguns and hunting bows to what type of camouflage clothing is best.
