Review

“It’s the right time for a book on deer of the Southwest. Jim Heffelfinger has crammed a tremendous amount of information into this book. The test is not in scientific style as this may be a deterrent to many readers, but he cites source information so that anyone interested can review the original articles and draw their own conclusions. I found the book outstanding because of the width of coverage and the readability.”--Dr. Wendell Swank, former Texas A&M University Wildlife professor, former director of the Arizona Game and Fish Department, and author of the book The Mule Deer in Arizona Chaparrel (1958)

Format: Paperback
With "Deer of the Southwest", Jim Heffelfinger has the merit of creating a performing work for every one wants to learn about Mule Deer and With-Tailed Deer and the wildlife in the America's Southwestern environments.
The work includes 9 chapters treating the taxonomy of the deer, their historical perspectives (including the evolution of the family in America), physical characters (especially those which let people distinguish the two species), their antlers in particular (their shape, variation, and main anomalies), animals' requirements in water and food, their density, home range, and movements, their reproduction, their mortality, and finally, their management.
The book marks an important step in the understanding American wildlife and makes its author as one of the most authoritative specialist on knowledge and management of deer in the America's Southwestern.
Its style is easy and pleasant and the book can be easily read by the scientist as well as all non specialist. Wildlife management agents, university teachers and researchers, people found of wildlife of simple curious in natural history can found here a lot of interesting knowledge and information about this subject.

This is an excellent book in regards to a biological look at deer in southwest US. May be a bit boring if you don't like technical terms and gargon, but I can say that I learned a lot from this book. I would recommend serious hunters read this book.
