The Ultimate Guide to Deer Hunting Skills, Tactics, and Techniques (Ultimate Guides) (Paperback)
With deer hunting advice from a wide variety of experts, including Leonard Lee Rue, John Weiss, Peter Fiduccia, Kathy Etling, Monte Burch, and Hal Blood, The Ultimate Guide to Deer Hunting Skills, Tactics, and Techniques starts from the ground up, giving you a greater insight into the senses and habits of deer in order to better understand how to successfully hunt them.
With chapters on anatomy, glands, hearing, and eyesight, as well as behavior before, during, and after the rut, this ultimate guide teaches beginners and experts alike how to hunt in any terrain and in any weather conditions, with bow, rifle, muzzle loader, and shotgun.
Specific tactics such as stand hunting, still hunting, stalking, putting on drives, rattling, and using decoys are all covered in detail. As a bonus, there is also a chapter devoted entirely to venison recipes with step-by-step instructions for cooking stews, chili, roasts, steaks, burgers, and more.
