From one of North America?s most famous wildlife photographers and deer-hunting experts comes The Deer Hunter?s Illustrated Dictionary, a compendium of popular and not-so-popular words and phrases used by deer hunters from Maine to Texas. Listed alphabetically and supported by the author?s own black-and-white photographs, the entries include everything from abomassum (the deer?s ?true stomach?) and annual recruitment to flehmen (the buck?s way of testing the air to determine whether the doe is in estrus) to zeroing in. The Deer Hunter?s Illustrated Dictionary provides the reader with the data needed to study, understand, and appreciate these animals throughout the course of the year. Informative and entertaining, The Deer Hunter?s Illustrated Dictionary is a book no one with an interest in deer can afford to be without.
