American Whitetail Deer Hunting Tips and Resources is a "how to" book to help the new, young and inexperienced deer hunters as well as veteran hunters develop or further their education on hunting the whitetail deer. You can never stop learning about the whitetail deer regardless of how experienced, as a deer hunter you may be. There are many hunters who actually deer hunt a great deal but are fairly unsuccessful in their efforts. This book took over six years of actual research and writing, and 35 years of deer hunting experience to create. What makes the information in my book so valuable to most hunters, is the fact that it is based on hunting the whitetail deer on primarily wild, unmanaged, local area timber and farm land. This is basically the same type of deer hunting that most hunters confront each and every year. The deer are not dependent on man for their quality of life as they are on many large whitetail deer ranches where your success rate goes up considerably. While strongly advocating good hunting ethics, and family involvement, this book is packed full of valuable information and tips, pictures, and illustrations to help hunters become consistently successful each and every year. Whether you are young, elderly, male, female, regardless of nationality, or skin color, we all face the same challenges when deer hunting.
The whitetail deer of North America is one of the most illusive and cunning creatures to harvest consistently year after year. The hunter must first become knowledgeable of the animals strengths and weaknesses, his habits, food sources, body language, rutting/mating habits, senses, vocal sounds, habitat, predators, etc. in order to match wits with him.This book covers all of these things in depth plus much more. Learn everything from included packing lists to how to prepare your venison for the table. You will become familiar with hunting strategies and tactics, selecting a stand location and how best to set up to hunt, how to still hunt, stalk, and track deer, how to deal with the scent problem and the ever changing wind. Become aware of deer in your hunting area that you didn't even know were there, totally undisturbed in their natural habitat, with the use of night vision cameras. Discover the importance and value of good shot placement, and how to retrieve and/or track your deer after he has been wounded or harvested. The field dressing, skinning, butchering, and packaging process for the freezer is an absolute necessity for each and every deer hunter. Educate yourself on how to rough score your buck to determine if he is a contender for the Boone & Crockett, or Pope & Young clubs record book. You will be able to age your deer using the most accurate method, the jaw bone tooth chart method. As a bonus, you will receive over twenty-five great venison recipes, and hundreds of whitetail deer hunting and other related web site addresses in the last two chapters.
American Whitetail Deer Hunting Tips and Resources will become an actual tool for each and every deer hunt you go on. It should be at the top of your packing list and will serve as an excellent reference guide for your trip. You will find the lengthy list of web sites in the back invaluable on many occasions. Refer to them for moon phases, weather conditions, sun rise and set information, available leases in your area, your state hunting forecast, requirements, andresults, etc. Refer to the illustrations and charts on food sources, and how to recognize them, tracking your wounded deer and how to determine how severely he was hit, in order to determine how far he may go before you may recover him. Learn from photographs included in the book, how to recognize poisonous snakes, spiders, ticks, and all about Lyme disease, and what to do in the event of a poisonous bite situation. Whitetail deer hunters will appreciate the convenience of having the information found in this book readily available to them in one source. It is my sincere belief and hope that this book will not only make you a better deer hunter, but also help create stronger bonds between hunting companions, particularly between parents and their young hunters.
American Whitetail Deer Hunting Tips and Resources Wow! I have read at least 50 books dedicated to whitetail deer in my lifetime. This one is by far the best. It has great information for everyone who wants to start hunting, to the seasoned deer hunting veteran, and everyone in between. The book is well written and contains everything I could ever think of and more. I have hunted whitetail deer for over 25 years and thought I knew all there was to know about them. I found the book very interesting and highly recommend it to everyone who hunts deer. Great job Mr. Townsend!

American Whitetail Deer Hunting Tips and Resources is the most informative book on the American Whitetail I have read in years. From the field to the freezer, Terry Townsend captures everyaspect of the sport we love. His love of the hunt and his respect for the animal and its' environment is unmistakable. I use to say all you needed on a hunt were the three B's: Binoculars, Bullets, and Brains. I now make it the four B's: Binoculars, Bullets, Brains, and this Book.

Jimmy Holt, a native Nashvillian, is probably the best-known outdoor personality in Tennessee. He has hosted The Tennessee Outdoors-men television show for more than thirty years, written the outdoor pages for The Tennessean, and hosted his own radio show in Nashville. He also writes regularly for hunting and fishing magazines.
For many years now, I have read and listened to deer hunters as they told stories about their first hunting trips into the woods in search of the whitetail deer. Terry Townsend's story is the latest I've had the pleasure of reading and his book, American Whitetail Deer Hunting Tips and Resources is the most interesting and complete deer hunting information I've read. He talks the talk, takes you into the woods, makes you smell the great outdoors and then has you soaking wet as you climb into your tree stand. He talks about sighting in your weapon, setting up a hunting camp, reminds you to contact land owners before you enter their property.
