    Recent stalking/deer books

    Anyone else read the new book from Duff Hart-Davis, Among The Deer?

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Among-Deer-W.../dp/1846890969

    It recounts his experiences of stalking in both Scotland and England. As stalking reminiscences go it is pretty good - I found a few familliar names in amongst his stories!

    In a similar vein, has anyone read John Fletcher's fascinating history of deer parks (Gardens of Earthly Delight)?

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gardens-Eart...6870299&sr=1-4

    If not, I'd definitely recommend it, whether or not you are "into" deer parks. It certainly whetted my apetite to go visit some deer parks!

    Not a stalking book but one involving flyfishing is called The Snowfly by Joseph Heywood, excellent read.
    Below is a link to my website.

    I was halfway through John Fletchers excellent new book but got a bit distracted by a couple of ebay purchased books, going back to it now. Very good to see a book that is both a detailed reference book and a good read too. I reckon John knows a thing or two about deer. I thought about bidding for the D H-D book on the BDS auction but several people had the same idea! JC

    Just started the Fletcher book, which I picked up at the weekend. Enjoyable and informative so far.
    "Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water... BAM! A f**kin bullet rips off part of your head! Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces! Now I ask ya. Would you give a f**k what kind of pants the son of a bitch who shot you was wearing?"

    Thanks for the tip, I've just ordered a copy for a bit of holiday reading next week.
