Welcome to Canada-home of the big bucks. Whitetail monarchs freely roam through the hardwood forests and crop fields in the checkered agricultural belt of this vast land. Heredity endows our deer with large bodies and matching massive antlers, but environment dictates behavior. Canadian whitetails are different and behave differently from their southern brethren. No matter where you have hunted before, deer hunting in Canada is a brand new game. Your old, tried-and-true ways will not work here. New tactics and strategies are required. Veteran hunter, Dragan Vujic, shares close to forty years of hunting experience in this comprehensive book on Canadian Whitetail Hunting. The book itself is divided into three parts-The Facts About Canadian Whitetails (general information, game laws, social structure, habitat, communication, breeding behavior, anatomy, kill zones), Critical Factors That Determine Canadian Whitetail Behavior (weather, phases of the moon, hunting pressure, time of year, scents, doe to buck ratios, time of day, food sources), Effective Canadian Whitetail Hunting Strategies (archers, snipers, stalkers, callers, drivers, blockers). Within these sections, Dragan Vujic covers all of the key components for hunting whitetails in Canada. Additional chapters include tactics for all situations, the recently new phenomenon of hunting deer in the suburbs and tracking wounded whitetails. [email protected]

One of the most captivating aspects of hunting a whitetail buck is tracking and taking him on his turf, on his terms. For most hunters, tracking generates a feeling of satisfaction like no other deer-hunting tactic can. Yet while most of us fantasize about duplicating the efforts of the well-known trackers of Maine, such as the Benoits or Bloods, the reality of effective tracking is that it requires several critical elements. Many hunters feel less than capable when it comes to knowing how to track a buck successfully. They have been brainwashed by magazine articles that leave them thinking that they must be doing something wrong. Nonsense! Peter J. Fiduccia tells us in Tracking Deer that tracking can be easy, if you learn to think like the deer and work to master the fundamentals. In this comprehensive guide you will learn how to regulate and maintain space when pursuing a deer, which is key to remaining undetected. Crucial factors such as reading sign, orienteering, and the importance of being in tip-top shape are discussed in detail. You will also be trained to figure out the favorite trails of a wise old buck, what he will do under pressure, what his preferred escape routes are, where he will head when he is nervous, and how he will use cover to his advantage. When added to basic tracking skills, all of these techniques will give you an edge this hunting season, even when you're hunting a trophy buck.
