Overview

Since its first printing in January 1975, How to Bag the Biggest Buck of Your Life has quite literally become a legendary book. There is no denying that the whitetail deer is the greatest game animal in North America. And there are a lot of good books on hunting the whitetail. Why has this one become a publishing legend?First, the prose is superb. From the first section on ridge runner bucks to a final chapter on Larry Benoit's thoughts about what being a deer hunter means to him, the book reads beautifully. It is engaging and illuminating, the words flowing seamlessly.But the book goes beyond that, as it has a sense of spirit of frontier-like freedom and opportunity. Larry Benoit looks at the mountains as our pioneer forefathers saw them.Another thing about Larry Benoit and his hunting is that he is a family man, one who dedicated himself to raising his sons to share the hunting trails with him, The fact that Larry's sons are also great hunters says a lot about his character and strengths. He obviously has taken the time and care to share with his boys what they need to know to be good hunters and good men.
