Rather than thinking of deer as "sweet, little brown-eyed animals," people should know these creatures are tough, resilient "super survivors," says Erwin Bauer. Surviving increased hunting and environmental pressure, whitetail deer thrive throughout the U.S. and inhabit all but about four states. Unlike most books that depict deer in one area, Whitetails show the deer in a vast range of environments, from swamp and semi-desert to ranch, farm, and woodlands. Photos by Erwin and Peggy Bauer.
"The Bauers' spectacular photos and text make [Whitetails] a book that hunters and non-hunters will revisit whether to read favorite passages or just look at the photos." --Deer and Deer Hunting
"Anybody interested in nature will enjoy this book. Deer hunters, whether armed with a camera or a gun, will be fascinated by the text and tantalized by the pictures." --Small Press
"Although hunting how-to is included, this is not necessarily an exclusive hunting book. Rather, it is a true encyclopedia, with every imaginable detail from A to Z about deer. . . . Also in the book are excellent color photos of the global deer family plus numerous illustrations and line drawings." --River Country Outdoors
