Synopsis: Stand hunting. Still hunting. Driving. Platoon brushing. Rattling. The loop method. These are among the strategies described in this book that produce successful mule deer trophies. The wily mule deer's keen sense of hearing, nerves of steel, and unpredictability make it one of nature's true survivors. It has become one of the hardest North American game animals to bag, and its remarkable ability to adapt gives it a decided edge over the average hunter. Stalking Trophy Mule Deer is packed with field-tested advice, fascinating data on mule deer behavior, and a wealth of first-person hunting stories. Learn the mule deer's instincts and habits, its wide range, and its preferred foods. Learn also the best ways of tracking it, how to judge trophy deer in the field, the importance of adapting hunting strategies to changing situations, and why hunter conservation of natural resources is critical to the future of sport hunting. Odd facts such as the importance of the "edge effect" (where two contrasting types of habitat meet) on mule deer population, and the desirable effect limestone soils have on mule deer antler development, fill the pages. Be prepared for mule deer that outsmart hunters, too, in colorful accounts that will make you chuckle. This book shows the novice hunter how to become a good hunter, and offers good hunters many valuable suggestions which will help them bag bigger bucks next season. Written as the serious deer-hunter's guidebook, it is also fine fireside entertainment for all who enjoy the lure of the wilderness. The author is a well-known hunting writer and authority on deer behavior and ecology. His hunting techniques developed over 30 exciting years nad many successful hunting treks. Much of the material in this book has been adapted from his articles originally published in Field & Stream and Outdoor Life magazines.
About the Author: Walt Prothero's quest for trophy mule deer has taken him through six states and several Canadian provinces. He began hunting trophy bucks at the age of fourteen and has hunted each year since for thirty years, bagging more than sixty trophies. He has worked as a wildlife biologist, forester, bartender, wilderness guide, writer, and teacher. He has earned both a Master of Science degree in wildlife biology and a Master of Arts degree in English. His successful deer hunts have led to scores of articles for Outdoor Life and Field & Stream, and a book, Stalking Big Game. He currently teaches English at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, and is a contributing editor at Field & Stream magazine. This book reflects his wide range of experience and skill. In Stalking Trophy Mule Deer, he shares tactics he's used successfully for big bucks, including tracking, driving, ambushing, rattling, still-hunting and stalking. Stalking Tophy Mule Deer includes a wide range of information on deer behavior, ecology, migrations and other biology useful to the would-be or experienced buck hunter. What he writes makes interesting reading, too - the anecdotes in the book not only illustrate useable hunting techniques and show how things were in the "good old days," they also entertain and make for good fireside reading.
