By John Higley
For those who realize that the beautiful blacktail deer — from the California Sierras north through the specialized conditions found in Oregon and Washington, and then on farther north to the Sitka subspecies — there has long been need of a single source book on hunting this wily deer species. That book is now available as Stoneydale Press has combined with John Higley to issue the first ever major and comprehensive book on "Hunting Blacktail Deer" throughout the species' entire range. Blacktail expert and well-known hunting writer John Higley, who lives and hunts in the blacktail country of northern California and who has hunted the blacktail throughout much of its range, has put together the first-ever comprehensive book on hunting the wily critter. Serious blacktail hunters know it is one of most cunning and difficult-to-hunt species of deer there is. They also know that hunting it in one part of its range presents different challenges than going after it in others, a fact that Higley has covered well in his new book. Chapters cover a wide variety of topics, including hunting the blacktail under varying conditions, and the book contains numerous photographs and a color cover of a stunning blacktail buck. Softcover, 164 pages.
