    My signed copy (#412) of Mike Eastman's new book on Mule Deer Hunting Tactics just arrived. I thumbed through it and have already found that the pictures alone make the book well worth it. It is full of amazing photos! I don't plan to speed through it, but will take my time and enjoy each chapter. The Eastman books are so fun to read because Mike's narration leads me to compare similar hunting experiences I've had and I'll find myself nodding and smiling as a remember various situations. The books are just easy to relate to, and I think Mike does a great job encouraging the reader to "come along with me." I'm looking forward to this...

    That's an awfully strange statement... it's like saying Eastmans' made public land hunting popular.

    Mine showed up today, looks to have lots of good stuff in it. I do think eastmans was one of the reasons for the increased popularity of the high country, especially western Wyoming. I have learned a ton from them and wouldn't be as good of a hunter if I hadn't read their books, subscribed to the magazines etc.

    If it's as good as his books on antelope and elk, it will be a winner. I expect lots of good, practical advice from Mike.

    Got mine a couple of days ago (#1965, the year I got out of the Army!). After reading about 2/3s of it, a light in my old brain started to blink! A lot of what Mike is saying is what I have been doing for years!

    Hunting the same area, keeping records and notes. My family has hunted the same area since 1946. Same camp in the backcountry via horseback packin. I know the area so well that I know exactly where I want to be at legal shooting time on opening day. I have documented every deer I've shot there since 1960, been over 30.

    The only problem is that the quality of the bucks has really declined. 30 years ago 75% of our deer were 4x4s, now its around 10 to 20%. We also see less deer. Hunting pressure is about the same as it always is, usually never see another hunter except our group. Problem is (as I see it) the country has changed a lot. The meadows have grown up with pines and there seems to be less open, brushy places. Used to graze sheep in the backcountry before WW2, not much after. Hardly any fires either. I think there is really less feed (funny...deer don't eat trees!). Havn't been there since 2005, but am going back in 2013. There was a big fire in the area in 2005, so we'll see.

    I kinda got off topic, Mikes book is great and worth reading. Better than lots of the hunting books in my Library now! It's a KEEPER
