Overview

Deer Companions includes several years of observations and experiences at a deer farm. The reader will be introduced to a herd of several dozen white-tailed deer, become closely acquainted with several (and their human caretakers), and even see a little of what used to be called natural history. The nearest likeness to the authorâs experience is the proverbial traveler to a distant land who becomes adopted into an exotic tribe. We will see the herdâs social structure, as it were, from the inside, and acquire a jealous, but very devoted, sweetheart. (Thatâs her on the cover.) The author has seen this happen to several other people but, after extensive research, can find no published mention of it. The picture doesnât do it justice; no one else can see the look in Sugarâs eyes when she does that.

There is also an extensive appendix describing habitat and herd manipulations in all fifty states of the Union to âenhance sporting opportunitiesââ"multiply deer populations for huntersâ benefit. This puts away any claim that hunting is about population control.
