Raycroft's introduction is a fascinating account of his personal experiences photographing big bucks, does and young fawns in the field. He shares with the reader his favorite moments spent capturing these creatures on film.
White-Tailed Deer covers subjects such as the evolution of the species (now the most widely distributed mammal in North America); the antler cycle (antlers, one of the most powerful symbols of wilderness, have graced the North American forests since the retreat of the last ice age); the rut (this peak period of breeding activity occurs from mid-October to mid-December); young white-tails (springtime fawns); and the future of white-tailed deer (whose superior senses and adaptability will guarantee its continued success).
A section on photographing white-tailed deer discusses a range of topics, from having the proper equipment to knowing where to find and photograph white-tails, and what the most favorable times are to take pictures in the wild.
