Black bears number close to one million animals on the North American continent, and their population is larger than any other bear species on earth. They range from Mexico to Alaska, and just as the terrain they inhabit is diverse, so are the hunting tactics for obtaining them. Black bears are hunted with hounds, by spot-and-stalk, from a boat, by calling them in, and by baiting them.

Well-known author J. Y. Jones has interviewed twelve top black bear guides to find out how they manage to get bears year in year out, hunt after hunt. So follow the author from Alaska to Arizona and from the East Coast to the West Coast as he asks penetrating questions of the guides. Not only will you learn how guides bag their bears, but you will also learn how you should prepare in case you want to go on a guided hunt. And even better you will learn how to interview your guide before you put your hard-earned money on the line.

Whether you are looking for a guided hunt or one that you want to do by yourself, you will learn a lot from these pages. From calibers to clothing and from bait to binoculars, every topic necessary to hunt black bears is covered in these pages. This is not a book from one author who has shot six bears in his entire life; it is a book with hunting information from twelve of the top black-bear guides—people who have guided hunters to hundreds of bears and who have a cumulative experience of over 300 years. Try to beat that!

    Lightspeed to Babylon

    "Captivating! Great imagery. Difficult to put down. Though fiction, the author's use of scientific fact combined with Biblical proclamations paints an entirely plausible picture of the earth's future. The alarm has once again been sounded. How will we respond?"

    Dad's Tackle Box

    "Fact-based, personal and loving recollection of a career-military father's life, as told from his adult son's perspective including keen insights developed after his father's death. I recommend this book, both for its military perspective reminiscent of The Lords of Discipline by Pat Conroy and for its characterization of the challenges growing up in the rural South during the twentieth century. This is one of several books I've read by Dr Jones, and I found it intensely captivating."

    Worship Not The Creature: Animal Rights And The Bible

    "Very rarely does a book come out that tackles such an important topic confronting our culture, an issue that is subtle and confounding to many. Dr. Jones does an insightful job of communicating the deception of the animal activist movement that is threatening the very essence of the Judeo-Christian worldview. This is the first book I have read that endeavors to present a true Biblical response to the animal rights agenda. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to better understand this insidious movement and the Biblical viewpoint a Christian should have toward it."

    Worship Not The Creature: Animal Rights And The Bible

    ‘This book is so gripping that I found it difficult to put down. I have known Dr. Jones for many years as a physician, hunter, author, and close friend. He and his wife Linda were frequent guests in our home in Washington, D.C., when I was in the U.S. House of Representatives, attending the National Prayer Breakfast and State of the Union Address, among other activities. His beliefs are deep-seated and convincing. Anyone should find this read to be thought-provoking and intensely interesting.’

  • Blind Ambition by J.Y. Jones

    Blind Ambition by J.Y. Jones

    "If you like classic good versus evil themes like those revealed in the movie" Devils Advocate" with Al Pacino or Dan Browns' book " Angels and Demons" and the follow up movie with Tom Hanks, then you will really like Dr J.Y. Jones's excellent book, "Blind Ambition". Set in a coastal south Georgia town, the book theme sets two established ophthalmologists on a collision course of self realization and soul searching as angels and demons try to intervene and influence the turn of events.One doctor is a good man trying to help his clients and ends up being sued by a greedy doctor who is addicted to lots of money, ambition, fast women and drugs and does not care how he achieves his goals.Thickening the plot is a host of angels working for the good doctor and bevy of demons pushing the evil doctor to prevail at all costs. Does it help to pray? You bet it does as you listen in on the inter musings of the angels and demons. Then you realize that we all face similar conflicts as we make daily decisions that effect the events in our everyday lives, just like the characters in this great book. The book is a wonderful, entertaining read and would make a great movie! I highly recommend it! John Trussell"

    One Man, One Rifle, One Land

    "I have really enjoyed this book. The hunting stories are real with no fluff or "made up" success and fabricated for entertainment value. Mr. Jones is not arrogant and brings reality to all of his hunts and this is a great reference for study of each of the animals he pursues. If you enjoy reading great hunting adventures or simply learning more about one of the species of big game on this continent, you will enjoy! This is a huge book and very well worth the money."
