See what it takes to track trophy-sized bucks like the legends do.

If there is such a thing as hunting royalty, then the Benoit family is it. They have been raking in trophy-sized bucks since Larry Benoit first began to pioneer his unique tracking methods. As the family grew, so did the Benoit hunting repertoire, expanding beyond simple snow tracking to all-season tracking.

Author Bryce M. Towsley had a unique opportunity in the late nineties: to deer hunt with the Benoits for an extended period in the deep woods of Maine. He spent time with the Benoit family observing and learning their hunting tactics, techniques, and long-protected secrets.

The product of Towsley’s inclusion in the Benoit family tradition is Big Bucks the Benoit Way. Fully illustrated with Towsley’s beautiful, full-color photography and written with his trademark prose and with a new introduction by the author, it tracks his experience following in the footsteps of the great Benoit hunters, learning their craft and sharing it with you. Big Bucks the Benoit Way is more than an exploration of the fine art of tracking bucks; it’s a glimpse at the heart and beauty of American big-game hunting.

Most hunters will never have the opportunity to track deer in the North woods the way Larry does and will resort to stand hunting. However, the application of tracking will still apply, mainly when scouting for your stand. Most informative book on whitails regarding tracking/scouting and interpeting deer sign. Larry reminds me of my Grandfather's generation of deer hunters... Entertaining... Must Read!!!
