Leonard Lee Rue III's Way of the Whitetailby Leonard Lee Rue III
The white-tailed deer population is now the highest it’s been since the mid 1600s, making whitetails one of the greatest conservation success stories. However, this growth explosion has coincided with an increasing human population and the destruction of the deer’s habitat. The result has been an effort to reduce the number of deer while juggling the needs and wants of landowners, the public at large, hunters, and the best interests of the deer themselves.
Fortunately, better management, coupled with our ever-increasing knowledge of the deerthanks in part to noted experts such as Leonard Lee Rue IIIshould ensure the deer’s future.
In Leonard Lee Rue III's Way of the Whitetail Rue leads readers through the whitetail’s behavior, writing in his trademark soft science style with the authority of one who knows their every habit and haunt through personal research. The result is an easy read that’s scientifically sound.
Readers follow the whitetail’s behavior through the seasonsmonth by month. Rue also covers this animal’s extraordinary sensory abilities and provides insight into the versatility and adaptability of this creature, which occupies a vast geographic range while other species struggle to merely exist among humans.

Author Bio: Dr. Leonard Lee Rue III of Blairstown, New Jersey has spent much of his life studying, photographing, and living with wildlife in its natural habitats. He is the author of twenty five books on wildlife, including The Deer of North America, and is one of the most published wildlife photographers in the country. Dr. Rue was awarded the Outdoor Writers’ Association of America’s Jade of Chiefs Award for conservation writings, as well as the North American Nature Photographers' Association’s highest award, The Lifetime Achievement in Nature Photography Award.
This book . . . reflects a wealth of knowledge and experience. It is a celebration of Rue’s relationship with this fascinating animal. Many of the observations he reports have never been previously documented. I recommend it to all students of deer, whether they are hunters, professional biologists or just deer lovers.
