“Staging is only limited by the offender’s imagination among other things. Therefore, it is very important to learn about all types of staging behaviors including those that might be specific to hunting-related incidents. This unique book allows us to do just that.”
—Dr. Laura Pettler, author of Crime Scene Staging Dynamics in Homicide Cases
“Incredibly fascinating, informative, and intriguing. This is a must-read for the hunter, game warden, hunter safety administrator, hunter education instructor, or crime scene investigator in any field. The authors of Blood on the Leaves are the foremost experts in this highly specialized science of investigating hunting incidents. They are passionate about keeping hunters safe, drawing out the nuances of potential crime scenes, comforting all victims, supporting their colleagues through the worst of times, and enforcing the laws. The chapters are captivating stories drawn from personal experience and their real, very real, field investigations of hunters. Some incidents result in serious injury and others death. Their writing style has the reader knowing next to nothing at the start, following in their footsteps searching for and documenting evidence to painstakingly build each case. The best investigator allows the scene to speak for itself, for that is the only way to know what actually happened so that justice will serve victim and all others involved.”
—Dr. Charles Bruckerhoff, Hunter Education Coordinator, Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection
“The stories in this book explore and teach the on-the-ground reality of hunting accidents. Blood on the Leaves lifts the reader to a new level of awareness. It does so through captivating storytelling. In the process the reader learns how minor departures from the safety code of the hunt have unleashed devastating consequences on both victim and shooter.”
— Jim Posewitz, founder of Orion—The Hunter’s Institute, and author of Beyond Fair Chase
'Like me, you probably think you are a very safe hunter. But I promise you, this book will convince you that accidents can happen to even the safest of hunters. We are only a sudden stumble or a misplaced shot away from tragedy. This book is particularly appropriate for new hunters but even for those of us who have been hunting for decades, it offers sobering stories that will assure that we all hunt more safely this fall. Buy this book, read it, and share it with your hunting buddies.' (The Maine Sportsman)
