    Any Richard Prior books - woodland and for hill Lea McNally

    John Dryden - talking stalking (for a few good tales)

    Dominic Griffiths - 1 book (a different take)

    "Field Dressing and Butchering Deer" by Monte Burch.

    Its a very interesting read.

    I got my copy from BushWear

    Halcyon Press also publish the Ross Curtis books, they are a series of 4 books telling the storty of the authors exploits as a deer culler in NZ in the 60s and how if something can go wrong it will go wrong. Titles i think are Murphys Law, Murphy on my Back and i can't think of the other 2 right now, but a very good read. This guy was shooting over 1000 reds in a nine month season on foot and skinning them all out, shooting was all with a 303 smle, he once shot 7 deer with one shot!
    I read all 4 when i was over there, i think these books are partly responsible for me getting hooked on stalking!

    I'd second that recommendation. I received Vol 2 for Christmas and it is very informative and an easy read.

    Stalking Deer in Great Britain by Ian Alcock should definitely be in the bookcase.
