Humans understand at least some of what it means to be human, both literally and figuratively, in reference to wild animals. Our relationships with wildlife have traditionally been expressed in terms of hunting; more recently, these relationships have also been manifest as efforts to prevent hunting. Hunting and fishing traditions are, in fact, under fire by critics at the same time that they are receding of their own accord - perhaps becoming even more endangered than any of the pursued animals. These traditions form the major focus of Wild Games, a new collection of essays that looks at the folklore and culture of various hunting and fishing practices, documenting the central importance of hunting to many rural societies, even in modern times. Editors Dennis Cutchins and Eric Eliason contend that hunters often don't perceive of themselves as separate from the wild but, rather, identify strongly with a natural order - integrated with, rather than standing apart from, the fluctuation of ecosystems. And they frequently don't see wild animals as "set apart" but understand them as food sources, competitors, friendly rivals, and even equals. Featuring contributions from a variety of distinguished scholars and writers - including an essay by the noted folklorist Simon Bronner on the culture of the deer camp, a fascinating account of coyote tracking by Eric Eliason, and an examination of the role of gender in outdoor life by Diane Humphrey Lueck - this book shows how the traditions of hunting and fishing tend to bind hunter and prey into ancient patterns that often defy contemporary culture.

North America's #1 big-game animal is the whitetail. Most hunters, however, are not successful in their quest for a big buck. Some of them set up their treestands in the wrong places, others simply move too fast and make too much noise when still-hunting or tracking. Whitetail Hunting is written to help put the odds in the hunter's favor every time he or she steps into the deer woods. In the section Understanding Whitetails, readers learn what habitats deer prefer, how they react to weather changes, where they feed, how they use their senses, and how they communicate with each other. Preparing for the Hunt explains what equipment and clothing hunters should buy regardless of whether they hunt with firearm or bow & arrow. Chapters in this section also discuss tips for scouting and locating whitetail hotspots before opening day. The latest information on Chronic Wasting Disease and other deer-specific ailments are discussed. Hunting Techniques shows readers how the experts stand-hunt, still-hunt, stalk or drive deer in different situations and habitats. Readers also learn when to rattle, how to place deer attractor scents, and where to find trophy bucks. Trailing wounded deer and field-dressing tips are also provided. Regional Differences explores the unique hunting strategies needed for specific terrains and weather conditions in the various major geographic regions of the US and Canada.

Hunting the Quails of North America is quintessential Ben O. Williams taut, direct, suffused with earned knowledge, and permeated by a gentle humor. It is a joyous book, brimming with its authors love of life afield, and while easily the most useful guide extant on the subject of wingshooting North American quails, it is also far more than a how-to manual. Its pages serve up wisdom, vision, and finally the ineffable and heartbreaking beauty of days spent out of doors. David Guterson, Snow Falling on Cedars and East of the Mountains. For Ben Williams, there is something very special about bird hunting. This book is not only about hunting game birds, bird dogs and bird guns, although they have been an important part of Williams life. Its also about each birds origin, distribution, life cycle, behavior, habitat, food and daily routine. Its about what Williams calls Learning Wild Things. Six species of quail are covered, each discussed in terms of when Williams first hunted the bird, exploring the bird's life cycle, and explaining how Williams hunts the bird today. These essays are about hunting wild things and wild places with clouds moving overhead and rocks beneath one's boots.
