Comprehensively Researched, Magnificently Photographed Although the whitetail population is at an all-time high, the lives of North America's most abundant and controversial deer are still shrouded in mystery.

This book is a must for anyone interested in whitetails: nature buffs, deer lovers, deer haters, wildlife managers, homeowners, photographers, highway troopers, and--not least--deer hunters. Full of never-before-published facts, observations, and intricate details, Whitetail Savvy is truly the indispensable guide for understanding, respecting, and preserving the future of this majestic species.

** BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week ** 'A fine book. A hymn of love to the sea... Deserves to be read widely' James Rebanks, author of A Shepherd's Life In the great depths surrounding the remote Lofoten islands in Norway lives the Greenland shark. Twenty-six feet in length and weighing more than a tonne, it can live for 200 years. Its fluorescent green, parasite-covered eyes are said to hypnotise its prey, and its meat is so riddled with poison that, when consumed, it sends people into a hallucinatory trance. Armed with little more than their wits and a tiny rubber boat, Morten Stroksnes and his friend Hugo set out in pursuit of this enigmatic creature. Drawing on science, poetry, history, ecology and mythology, Shark Drunk is the story of their quixotic quest. Together, they tackle existential questions, experience the best and worst nature can throw at them, and explore the astonishing life teeming at the ocean's depths. Shark Drunk is, in part, the tale of two men in a very small boat on the trail of a very big fish. It is also a story of obsession, enchantment and adventure. Above all, it is a love song to the sea, in all its mystery, hardship, wonder and life-giving majesty.

"Over the decades I've developed the impression that John Graves is the most honest writer in America, and also one of the best. Here is further evidence." --Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall My Dogs and Guns pairs two memoirs--two halves of an outdoorsman's heart. First is "Blue and Some Other Dogs," the story about Graves's favorite Basque-Australian sheep dog, Blue. Second is "Guns of a Lifetime" which is a nostalgic chronicle of the guns Graves has owned, beginning with a "rusted and cylinderless" revolver. "So here are the stories," Graves writes. "They are not all 'nice' tales in contemporary terms. Political correctness, as presently defined, may be perpetrated here and there, though I hope no parts will seem like the maunderings of a Deep South redneck. But if they do, the hell with it. I am too old to fret about such matters." It is delightful, hardy prose from a treasure of a writer.

Any angler who has ever been out-fished by a beginner with a twig and some twine or questioned whether bass are smarter than he is will be in good company here. Hilarious Fishing Cartoons pokes fun at every kind of angling absurdity. Tiers struggling to tie microscopic flies, bass fishermen who catch more boots than bass, weekenders loaded down with every gizmo and piece of tackle in the shop, and fanatical, freezing ice fishermen doomed to drill and not grill are all represented. Troy's pen is deft and clever, and his one-liners are truly side-splitting. The next time your line gets so tangled you're ready to curse or quit fishing forever, remember these cartoons and you may just find yourself chuckling instead. No one understands the challenges and frustrations of the outdoorsman's life like John Troy, and no one makes the maddening business of hunting so riotously funny. Anyone still kicking himself over a missed shot, anyone wishing that his hunting dog had paid more attention in obedience school, or anyone who has ever been confounded by the antics of a pesky squirrel will enjoy this hugely delightful collection. In typical John Troy style, we are treated to one-panel lampoons of shooters who can't hit stuffed animals, bears that beat up hunters, and ducks that make their own decoys. They're funny because they're true. Hilarious Hunting Cartoons will delight both novice and experienced hunters and will make an excellent gift for yourself or a passionate hunter you know.

If you're familiar with the world of hunting, you know how important dogs are in the field. Less known, however, is how vital these canines are to fishermen. For many anglers, packing your tackle and wading through the river without a trusted fishing dog is a recipe for disaster. In Fishing Dogs, Raymond Coppinger sheds light on the true value of fishing dogs of every size, shape, and color. Monsoon dogs, for example, lay in the bilge of boats until they are disturbed by the shipping of water. At that point, they rise up out of the bilge and unleash with tremendous power a series of epicentric rotational reciprocations, thus expelling inches of boat-threatening water. Coppinger also introduces readers to the Maine bowplunk dog, which received its name from its deeply ingrained habit of standing, proud and brave, on the bow of his master's boat as it moves through the choppy waters off Maine's coast. As a biologist, distinguished fisherman, and a known storyteller and fan of satire, Coppinger is more than qualified to discuss the various breeds of fishing dogs, in addition to topics as the evolution of dogs from wolves, the dangers of crossbreeding, and finding a fisherman's perfect fishing dog. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing.

A diverse collection of remarkable stories that represent the universal thrill of the fishing experience. From stalking the big game of the African savannah, to grouse shooting in the American Northeast, to bear hunting in the Pacific Northwest, a hunter's experience is as varied as the terrain that he or she traverses. But what is universal is the joy and elation that a hunter experiences while out in the field. Found in this collection are timeless works from celebrated writers that aim to explore the mysterious grip that hunting has held on the hearts and imaginations of those it has ensnared for centuries. Within these pages, the reader can: Join Rudyard Kipling as he chases a cow that has stolen his minnow Examine the philosophical side of angling with Thaddeus Norris Fish the Ohio River with John James Audubon Learn from a wise and experienced angler with Washington Irving And many more fishing escapades! With more than three dozen photographs and illustrations that masterfully bring these stories to life, Incredible Fishing Stories is a must-have for every angler looking to share in the joy of their chosen sport.
