This book is very informative. It provides a detailed break down of why deer behave the way they do. It clearly defines the whitetail rut using documented research centered around phases of the moon. This book helped me fill in a lot of information gaps and has provided me with a better understanding of whitetail behavior. This book describes why certain strategies may be more successful during different parts of the season based on deer behavior.

I found this book a thoroughly enjoyable read!

This book contains an easy-to-read writing style, useful research data and stunningly beautiful pictures! I particularly appreciate Mr. Alsheimer's willingness to share his personal views and his faith while giving the reader the best information available.

It's the sort of book I would (and will) read to develop my hunting skills and strategies, to challenge my approaches to field strategies, and for purely personal enjoyment!

I challenge anyone to read this book and NOT be thrilled, inspired and motivated to make the most of their time in God's great outdoors hunting those wonderful whitetails!

This book is great. I have hunted for several years and have read so many books about white tail. This book is one of the best. It provides lots of useful information for hunters like what are the best areas, how to hunt deer in different times, how to control human odor, etc. Many of these topics are common in most books, however, strategies to whitetails still manage to add new information (at least to me). I think it is a very useful book that will add lots of information to whoever buys it despite of his/her hunting experience. This book is definitely worth its price in gold.

As other reviewers have noted, the book is well illustrated and full of useful information, some of which is based on the author's original research. Although lightly peppered with religious remarks, it's only mildly distracting.

Most aspects of deer hunting are covered, but some only briefly. The section on the timing of the rut is thorough and research based rather than speculative. Other subjects are largely based on anecdotal evidence and informal observations.

Good book with Great pictures. I especially enjoyed the material on the rutting moon. That was pretty accurate in my last two hunting seasons. Good book to have on the coffee table if your an enthusiatic hunter. I love reading or flipping through it come September to get me game'd up for the season.

I predict that in coming years, this book will become a classic in deer hunting, mentioned in the same sentence with Larry Koller's Shots at Whitetails, Theodore Van Dyke's The Still Hunter, and a very few others that have stood the test of time. If you want to be a better deer hunter, get Strategies for Whitetails soon, and study it before next deer season. Besides getting many tips from a master deer hunter and a healthy appreciation for America's greatest big game animal, the discussion of the five stages of a deer hunter will allow you to do some healthy self-analysis.

Strategies for Whitetails is truly a comprehensive book, and the author's love for the animal that has brought so much to his life comes through loud and clear. Excellent color photography, countless insights into the natural world, a low price for a high quality book... you'll be glad you bought it.

Insightful, educational, enjoyable and makes me eager to do more to increase my hunting odds as well as get out in the woods! Great for beginner and experienced hunters alike! The part where he talks about his ranch deer pacing the fence over a quarter a mile from the does in estrus. Then about the science of the rut, and animal interaction was very educational. I went back we relooked at some game camera footage and could see the interaction and better understood it! Thanks for the knowledge!
