While those hunts are great for those who can afford them, Hunting Big Whitetails is a book for the rest of us. And, should you be lucky enough to hunt Alberta or one of those big ranches someday, with these tactics you’re odds will be even higher!

Real-life hunting stories illustrate the tactics about hunting from deer stands, still-hunting, deer drives, snow tracking and recovering wounded deer. You’ll also find lots of practical information including the habits and habitats of whitetail deer, gear and clothing, and shooting.

Sports Afield’s review said: “Every hunter dreams of taking a trophy buck, but very few succeed. In the end, only those armed with the right knowledge and enthusiasm have what it takes. Exploring expert tactics for scouting, still-hunting, stand-hunting, deer drives, tracking, calling and rattling, Bruce Nelson explains in detail how the ordinary hunter can achieve extraordinary results. In addition to information on the habits and habitats of big bucks, the best firearms, how weather affects the hunt, and regions that have the most trophy deer and the lowest hunting pressure, you get advice on choosing gear and clothing. Every hunter will learn something from this informative book.”
