Product Description

Obsessions of a Rifle Loony by John Barsness

John Barsness has written for every major hunting magazine published in North America, and some not so major. Obsessions of a Rifle Loony is a Collection of John’s work. He is known among a few of his close friends as the Bull Goose Rifle Loony and he wears the title proudly.

Obsessions of a Rifle Loony is a collection on John’s musings about hunting, guns, bullets, and such, some new and some published in places you may not have a subscription to. (Have you had trouble keeping up with his travels the last two years? Well, here’s your chance to catch up!)
