There’s something special about the deer hunters of yesteryear. Seeing rare images of snowy campsites, straining meat poles, classic rifles and the happy faces of the men and women who plied their trade so long ago connects us to those treasured times like nothing else in the world can do.
With the enormous popularity of the original Dawn of American Deer Hunting published in December 2015, author Duncan Dobie and Sporting Classics now bring you Volume II, chock full of amazing stories and facts, a breathtaking color section filled with eye-catching whitetail art and nearly 400 stunning black-and-white photos.
In Volume II, you’ll join iconic hunting heroes like Theodore Roosevelt, Fred Bear and Larry Benoit, and you’ll savor the handiwork of men like firearms genius John Browning who contributed so much to our hunting heritage through his amazing inventions.
You’ll visit robust deer camps across North America and get a feel for how it was when our grandfathers and great grandfathers braved the elements to pursue their favorite and most challenging big game animal. Dawn of American Deer Hunting, Volume II, belongs on every hunter’s coffee table.
Duncan Dobie’s first Dawn of American Deer Hunting sold more than 8,000 copies! But our Volume II is even bigger with more than 250 pages, 400 photographs, plus a special full-color section featuring some of the best whitetail paintings ever done.
You’ll enjoy seeing early American hunters with their huge whitetails and the rifles they used to shoot their trophies. The 8½ x 11-inch book includes many rare photos of some famous Americans—like Annie Oakley, Babe Ruth, Clark Gable, Ernest Hemingway, Theodore Roosevelt and Jack O’Connor—who hunted our country’s No. 1 big game animal.
