Deer Hunting by Richard P. Smith

  • Features updated information on preseason scouting, and hunting from stands
  • Third edition uses up-to-the-minute studies to add much-needed information about Chronic Wasting Disease

    Drawing on knowledge gleaned from a lifetime of hunting all across America and into Canada, using firearms, bow and arrow, and cameras, Richard P. Smith builds on the foundations of previous editions to give his most complete guide yet. Deer Hunting goes beyond basic hunting manuals into less traditional stalking techniques, the importance of ethical hunting practices, and the deep connection with the outdoors that draws hunters even when the odds of scoring are not great.
