How to Hunt Deer Up Close: with Bows, Rifles, Muzzleloaders and Crossbows by John E. Phillips

To be more successful as a deer hunter, learn all you can about the animal, the wind, the temperature and the techniques required to get in close. In this book, you'll read about some of the best hunters in the nation who know how to hunt deer close, including one of the greatest archers who ever lived, Howard Hill. John E. Phillips shares his own deer stories and hunting tips from 50 years of experience, and you'll have the opportunity to watch 25 videos explaining the latest research on deer movement. Now contains a bonus chapter with recipes for two full meals using venison! "We've known John for over 30 years and he's absolutely right about hunting close. Terry and I can both shoot well out past 50 yards. But, to make a good video and to take an ethical shot, we like to get deer within 30 yards or less. In order to get deer that close, we scout intensively, we use trail cameras to pattern the deer, we have multiple stand sites to hunt under different weather conditions and we practice many of the same techniques that John recommends in this book. If you want to take more big deer, this book is a must." --Mark and Terry Drury
