Noted hunting author Duncan Dobie has included an outstanding collection of vintage photographs and historical information from the late 1800s to the mid-1900s on the pages of Dawn of American Deer Hunting. You’ll see and learn about the classic rifles hunters used, how they traveled to their remote deer camps, what types of shelters they stayed in and more fascinating pieces of hunting history from the legendary deer regions around America. And admire the deer they took home – massive-bodied Northern bucks, trophy Texas antlers, buck poles filled with does and much-appreciated venison.

Each classic photograph in the book has its own story to tell – from the warm days and hound hunts of the southern states, to the deep tracking snow and frigid cold of Maine. Dobie expertly guides the audience to imagine the adventures of the rugged folk in each photograph, and soon readers will connect with these deer hunters of yesteryear.
