Deer give rise to many problems, whether in management and conservation, their annoying habit of eating trees and garden plants, or the practical details of deerstalking. The book is divided into sections like Antlers, Behavior, Damage, Stalking kit, each section with an overview of the topic, often containing humorous examples of the interface between deer and man and how they might be overcome.
Deer contains practical, well-tested solutions backed by the author's lifetime of experience. More than that, it is eminently readable--just the thing to dip into by the fire at the end of a hard day's stalking.
For more than fifty years Richard Prior has been a deer enthusiast--as an amateur stalker, a Forestry Commission Head Ranger, and advisor to the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust and the British Deer Society, and then as a freelance deer consultant to the Shooting Times. He has lectured extensively and was awarded the prestigious Balfour-Browne Trophy for services to deer on two occasions.
