Voted one of the best ten hunting books of the twentieth century, Halcyon have re-issued in a modern format this classic hunting tale.
Set first in the Wairarapa Colin Davey set out to improve the quality of the deer he was hunting. He was disappointed in the trophy quality and wanted to hunt bigger and better trophies. Not content to just go and shoot any deer he set out to reduce the population and cull inferior animals and in the course of time over several years improved the health and trophy quality of the deer he was hunting, within a small area of the Wairarapa. At the time this book was published his ideas were regarded with some skepticism, and caused a minor sensation.
