The most abundant big-game animal in North America, the whitetail deer thrives near places where people live. In The Ultimate Guide to Deer Hunting, David Richey explains how to hunt whitetails on the fringes of these areas, where forests meet farmlands and populated areas. Here, deer find adequate cover in wood lots, ample nourishment in wild food and farm crops, and often grow trophy antlers. Learning what deer eat in a particular region, Richey contends, is the first step in becoming a skilled hunter. The second step is to learn where those foods occur, and the third is to learn when whitetails feed on them. Citing actual hunts where a knowledge of those factors helped him score, the author urges others to study their environment before deer season opens, scouting hunting areas in advance to learn about food sources, bedding sites, and travel routes. All the important techniques are covered in this useful guide; hunting from a tree stand or ground blind, stalking, driving, reading wind direction, concealing yourself properly, rattling and calling, using attractor scents, and locating and hunting escape routes and feeding areas. Richey also suggests the best guns and loads or bows and arrows for hunting whitetails, as well as which types of clothes to wear for different situations.
