North America's #1 big-game animal is the whitetail. Most hunters, however, are not successful in their quest for a big buck. Some of them set up their treestands in the wrong places, others simply move too fast and make too much noise when still-hunting or tracking. Whitetail Hunting is written to help put the odds in the hunter's favor every time he or she steps into the deer woods. In the section Understanding Whitetails, readers learn what habitats deer prefer, how they react to weather changes, where they feed, how they use their senses, and how they communicate with each other. Preparing for the Hunt explains what equipment and clothing hunters should buy regardless of whether they hunt with firearm or bow & arrow. Chapters in this section also discuss tips for scouting and locating whitetail hotspots before opening day. The latest information on Chronic Wasting Disease and other deer-specific ailments are discussed. Hunting Techniques shows readers how the experts stand-hunt, still-hunt, stalk or drive deer in different situations and habitats. Readers also learn when to rattle, how to place deer attractor scents, and where to find trophy bucks. Trailing wounded deer and field-dressing tips are also provided. Regional Differences explores the unique hunting strategies needed for specific terrains and weather conditions in the various major geographic regions of the US and Canada.

Winner of a CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title Award for 2011! Biology and Management of White-tailed Deer organizes and presents information on the most studied large mammal species in the world. The book covers the evolutionary history of the species, its anatomy, physiology, and nutrition, population dynamics, and ecology across its vast range (from central Canada through northern South America). The book then discusses the history of management of white-tailed deer, beginning with early Native Americans and progressing through management by Europeans and examining population lows in the early 1900s, restocking efforts through the mid 1900s, and recent, overabundant populations that are becoming difficult to manage in many areas. Features: Co-published with the Quality Deer Management Association Compiles valuable information for white-tailed deer enthusiasts, managers, and biologists Written by an authoritative author team from diverse backgrounds Integrates white-tailed deer biology and management into a single volume Provides a thorough treatment of white-tailed deer antler biology Includes a CD-ROM with color images The backbone of many state wildlife management agencies' policies and a featured hunting species through much of their range, white-tailed deer are an important species ecologically, socially, and scientifically in most areas of North America. Highly adaptable and now living in close proximity to humans in many areas, white-tailed deer are both the face of nature and the source of conflict with motorists, home-owners, and agricultural producers. Capturing the diverse aspects of white-tailed deer research, Biology and Management of White-tailed Deer is a reflection of the resources invested in the study of the species’ effects on ecosystems, predator-prey dynamics, population regulation, foraging behavior, and browser physiology.

He spent the next four decades doing some hard travelling and found over 5,000 songs in Arkansas mountain cabins, Mississippi prison farms, New Orleans saloons, Minnesota lumber camps and Texas cattle camps. He discovered ballads, blues, children's songs, fiddle tunes, field hollers, lullabies, play-party songs, religious dramas, spirituals, and work songs and his recordings inspired generations of musicians from Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger to Billy Bragg and Kurt Cobain.

In Fish Like You Mean It, David ("Dead-Eye") Zoby explores his lifelong passion for fishing, hunting, dogs, and the pursuit of loose women. Perhaps no other occupation or pastime compendiates more perfectly the spirit of the American west, and in these eleven essays, David Zoby captures, with a blend of lyrical poignancy and uproarious humor, his fumbling, infectious, spasmodic pursuit. Fish Like You Mean It distills down into nuggets of gold the purest truths about dogs, fly-fishing, ducking hunting, and the human heart. "I've fished and hunted all of my life and written about these subjects for decades. Dave Zoby's essays are some of the freshest writing I've seen in some time." -- Don Thomas, author of To All Things a Season "From the Mid-Atlantic to Alaska and through the grasslands in between, these essays range over the topography of a nation and follow the contours of a life. This collection holds a place in a tradition that spans from Thoreau to the present. In this book, you will not find endorsements of gear or tips on where to locate trout. You will find something of greater value--moments of transcendence in the field and on the water: '... falling into the prairie ... steer beaten dirt ... dust devil rising ... the tide gone out forever.' In language both poignant and revealing, David Zoby leads us on a journey of reflection and discovery." -- Chad Hanson, author of Trout Streams of the Heart "Dave Zoby is first and foremost, a writer, stylist, and storyteller. He is also a passionate hunter, conservationist, fly fisherman, and dog man. In Fish Like You Mean It, he brings these skills and passions together in elegant essays that speak to the frustrations, absurdities, triumphs, and joys that make up a life afield. Always honest, never pretentious, Dave Zoby is one of our finest essayists." -- Henry Chappell, author of At Home on the Range with a Texas Hunter and Silent We Stood
