The Art of Whitetail Deception: Calling, Rattling, and Decoying Make Deer Hunt You!
From generation to generation, novice hunters have been taught the most productive way to hunt deer is to sit still and wait for a buck to pass by. While this tactic has worked well for many hunters--it isn't the only successful way to hunt white-tailed deer. Over the last twenty years, hunters across North America have discovered the benefits of using tactics that make bucks respond instinctively to their hunting locations. These strategies include rattling antlers, using deer calls, and employing both traditional and non-traditional decoys to coax bucks from cover. In Kathy Etling's latest book, THE ART OF WHITETAIL DECEPTION, she covers all aspects of attracting bucks by rattling, calling, and decoying. With maps that outline various hunting setups, interviews with some of the nation's most successful whitetail hunters, scientific studies on rattling, recommendations for different types of decoys, and much more, this is the most complete volume on this subject. The tactics and strategies covered will improve your chances of seeing and bagging bigger bucks this season--no matter where you hunt whitetails. This is an excellent resource to refer to each season--a book that every dedicated white-tailed deer hunter will want in his or her outdoor library.
