White-Tales and Cotton-Tales is a different book. Comical and written much like an ole-fashion southern deer hunt would take place, with hounds in the mix, in hopes of rousing ole-mossy horns. It expresses the fun and, sometimes, dangerous side of scouting an area for deer. Where and why one should place his or her stand. Within the shooting and ballistics theme is a seemingly hard to grasp relationship between bullet flight and gravity. It deals with marksmanship, well markspersonship, ok, ok, markswomanship. As marksmanship or markswomanship is essential with a firearm, so is the same princple essential with photography. Most deer hunting books are serious about how to kill ole-mossy horns. This one is on the comical side. The author does kill deer, however, ole-mossy horns, aw well as his gals, escape to be hunted again. It's about a time before ATV's, shooting houses over vast food plots, and the making of commercial hunting videos. It is intended to bring back fond memories of a time in the past. If, after reading this book, you cannot turn into venision, you might as well hang up your firearm and take up golf or something.
