Ohio has nurtured some of the most celebrated deer-hunting ground in the country, with a deer population of about 650,000 and well over 400,000 sportsmen pursuing them. From the heyday of the Native American deer slayer to the modern-day huntsman, outdoorsman and writer Robert Loewendick relays his knowledge of Ohio deer hunting and history with passion and grace. Hitting all four corners of the state and everything in between, Loewendick shares the conservation efforts that made Ohio a deer-hunting mecca while including stories of the biggest trophies and others of the most bizarre nature, like that of a buck that plays dead and another that survives an arrow through the head.

About the Author

Robert Loewendick is a freelance outdoor writer with work regularly published in magazines, newspapers and on the Internet, both in the United States and worldwide. His award-winning writing has earned him active memberships in Outdoor Writers Association of America and Outdoor Writers of Ohio. Along with Robert's passion for the outdoors is his enthusiasm for writing and photographing the outdoors. Robert believes that if one person, especially a child, is encouraged to spend a day in the outdoors because of his writing, his work will have been successful. While growing up in east-central Ohio, Robert was introduced to the benefits and privileges found in the forests, fields and on the water by his father. For nearly four decades, Robert has traveled the United States and been involved in outdoor pursuits, but the hundreds of days focused on hunting the white-tailed deer were experienced in the Buckeye State.
