Author is Don Higgens. Its a pretty quick read that was loaned to me by one of my good friends. He talks about when trying to hunt mature deer, that you really have to hunt and think outside the box. Going off memory he had around 25 deer that would go over 140 or so, all taken off of family farms, or friends properties that he had access to. None of his deer have come off leases, outfitted hunts, or behind a fence.

One chapter goes into the story of one of his bucks that scored around 210". All the crap he took off the locals that was starting rumors that he had poached the deer. Ends up getting confiscated by the DNR and then returned to him with an apology when the facts come out. He really sounded like a regular Joe that just had a nack for killing big deer and wanted to share some of his experiences.
