This is a very good book on the subject and should be required reading for every hunter out there. The topcs are well organized, the text clear and where necessary the pictures help out on some of the difficult points. There is also a summary at the end of the chapter to remind you of what you just learned and many practical pointers throughout the book about recovering wounded deer. The book concentrates on deer but the concepts can be applied to all groundbased hunting situations.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jackson Landers on May 17, 2006
Format: Paperback
I read this book at the wrong time. Which is to say I picked it up immediately after shooting my first deer, wounding it and being unable to retrieve it despite 2 days of tracking. If you've ever experienced this, then you know that this is the worst thing that a day's hunting can possibly lead to short of injuring a human being. Not a week has gone by since then that I have not thought about what I did wrong in my ignorance.

Don't let this happen to you. Buy this book. If you have a son or daughter who is planning their first hunt this fall, buy the book for them now. Don't just skim it - memorize it. I'm mid-way through my third reading of it. The author has tracked hundreds of deer and already made the mistakes that you can avoid if you'll listen to him.

How do you look at a single drop of blood and know which way the deer was travelling? What types of wounds will lead a deer to run what distances before bedding down? What does the color of the blood and the type of hair that the bullet or broadhead clipped off tell you about the deer's specific injuries and how long you should wait before tracking it?

If you're going out into the woods with a rifle over your shoulder then you have a responsibility to be able to answer these questions. This book answers all those questions and more. We all strive for the single shot kill but that doesn't always happen. You had better know what to do in that event.

The only reason why I do not give this book 5 stars is the sloppy editing. The publisher allowed this book to go to print with more typos than I could even count. The book is important enough to deserve a better printing with a publisher that actually employs proof-readers.

Format: Hardcover
I have hunted white tail for over 40 years, read many articles and books on hunting the critters but only one source has compiled how to track one after you have pulled the trigger or loosed the arrow.

This book should be mandatory reading for every hunter, experienced or not. I considered myself very experienced and was shocked at what I did not know. Now, I read my copy one month before heading into the woods. When I head out, I have it on my person. It is indexed quite well and the chapters are well categorized.

We hunters dump a huge amount of cash into our equipment. From bows to firearms to tree stands to clothing, etcetera. If we can pay for all of the equipment obtained just to have the opportunity to harvest a deer, shouldn't we be willing to spend a token amount to find that deer we just shot at?

Go ahead, its well worth the price. You won't be disappointed.

After having lost a big deer I was determined to improve my tracking skill. While this book would not have helped me track the lost one, I would have known not to take the marginal shot I did, in the first place. Good procedures post shot, and logical, organized approach to staying on the trail when hope starts running out. I recommend it to all hunters.

This was a very hard to find book but finally found it at Amazon. It was a used copy I believe but you wouldn't have known it. It was in perfect shape.
