For the last 40 years Joe Cavanaugh has traveled, hunted, and fished in some of the most remote wilderness in the Americas. His adventures started in the North Woods of Minnesota and Ontario, gravitated to the jungles of Central and South America, then to the mountains of Idaho. Cavanaugh is a do-it-yourself hunter, who favors hard-core outdoor experience. He has guided peacock bass fishing in Bolivia, elk hunting in Idaho, and adventure travel in the Amazon rain forest. At the root of his outdoor passion however, is hunting whitetail bucks in big woods. The editor of Petersen’s Hunting, Mike Schoby, choose Cavanaugh’s book The Jungle Hunter as one of just three of his all time favorite hunting books.
