“Of all the wonderful experiences I have had throughout a lifetime spent trying to find my way, the one thing I truly love is making people laugh. I am not a professional writer; however, I feel that affords me a certain authenticity as that of a casual, but somewhat gifted, storyteller whose voice will be approachable and well received. If I can use writing as a platform to encourage, inspire or positively impact people with useful insight and life lessons, provided I also manage to make soda come out of their noses on occasion, then I may very well have found my path as an author.”
Author Frederick N. Kloecker interview about his book Big Game Hunting 101, No Room Service and Other Terrifying Realities.
“I’m always fascinated how people find their way to a passionate lifestyle of hunting when they weren’t brought up in a hunting family. Fred Kloecker’s insightful journey into the unknown of big game hunting in his book Big Game Hunting 101, No Room Service and Other Terrifying Realities, is simply more hilarious with every page turned. It’s a wonderful reminder that the hunt is as much about the food, camaraderie, and laughter as it is about notching a tag. Kloecker’s sense of humor turns it into a fast read and will no doubt inspire other silver spooners to turn in their loafers and Dolce & Gabbana for some camouflage.”
“Who woulda thought that there are that many rednecks in Utah?! Reading Fred’s stories reminded me of a down-home family reunion in Booger Bottom, Georgia, where Cousin Jinny peed on Uncle Bubba’s deer stand because he ate the last piece of sweet potato pie from the refrigerator that had her name on it. Redneck ain’t in short supply in those Utah mountains and neither are the laughs.”
“Fred’s approach to sharing his humorous journey to becoming a ‘full-fledged hunter’ through
trial and error will have you laughing so hard people might think you’re crazy. Big Game Hunting 101,
No Room Service and Other Terrifying Realities is one book that separates itself from the pack.”
“You just can’t make this stuff up! Fred’s journey from novice to hunter is hilarious, yet sobering, but one filled with emotions many of us can relate to. A great book for novices, veteran hunters and those with a depraved sense of humor.”
