I just finished reading this book and I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn some interesting observations and manage their land for better deer and hunting.
If you don't know who Tom Indrebo is its worth finding out! He owns and operates Bluff Country Outfitters in Buffalo County WI. Probably one of the top outfitters in the nation.
The copyright in the book is 2008 so it is fairly new. I picked it up at their booth while at the Deer Expo in Madison earlier this month.
The book is well written and can be used by all deer hunters who are interested in either managing their land for whitetails or how to use their land to hunt whitetails.
Some of the things I found interesting where his very detailed notes and records that show many details in the lives of most deer taken on his land or the land he operates. His record keeping has shed some light on what a deer does and how and why it does it. Its neat to see what you can gather from all the data collected over the years.
His scouting camera use and tips will make you take another look at flash cameras and how deer react to them.
He also has some great chapters on how to manage your forest, food plots, and watering holes.
Another neat concept of the book was his month to month plan in action part where he describes why and what he does month to month throughout the year.
Overall this is a very informative book that is worth a read for all serious hunters. It's a great opportunity to crawl into the mind of one of America's top deer authorities. I learned stuff throughout the book and gained some insight into the world of whitetails.
