Book Description: Every fall close to one million hunters enter Pennsylvania's forests and mountains in quest of the white-tailed deer. Some are seeking sport and companionship; others are stocking their larders for winter; many are conservationists who regard hunting as the most humane way of reducing overpopulated deer herds. They all face the increasing activism of animal rights advocates who are opposed to hunting in principle and who frequently picket and harass hunters. This controversial subject is explored in depth by Mike Sajna, the outdoors columnist for Pittsburgh Magazine and a twenty-year veteran of Pennsylvania's "pumpkin army," the orange-clad throng that invades the woods every season. To explain the ethos and traditions of hunting he takes the reader to a typical deer camp in Warren County, in the rugged terrain of the Allegheny High Plateau. Starting with the trek north from their homes around Pittsburgh, he captures the sights and sounds, thoughts and feelings of three generations of hunters. With humor, affection, and insight he recounts the hunting lore, the camaraderie, the physical testing that make deer camp a unique experience.

Book Description: Twelve-year-old Joey MacTagert's dad wants his son to carry on the family tradition of hunting. But Joey has "buck fever"—he can't pull the trigger on a deer, and hates the idea of killing animals. He's more interested in art and hockey, two activities that his dad barely acknowledges. Joey's dad wants him to use his special skill in tracking to hunt down the big antlered buck that roams the woods near their home. Joey knows how to track Old Buck, but has kept secret from his father the reason he's gained the deer's trust. When trouble between his parents seems to escalate, Joey and his older sister, Philly, find themselves in the middle of tensions they don't fully understand. Joey wants to keep the peace, and if conquering his buck fever will do it, he has to try. Buck Fever is a nominee for the 2003 Edgar Award for Best First Novel.

Book Description: Hey Jim buddy, after lunch how about if you, Cousin Jack, and I head to the back of the farm and do some target practicing with the 22? Uncle Willy sensed that his 12 year old nephew, Jim, was ready to be introduced to shooting a rifle. The long-lasting nephew-uncle relationship that began with brook trout fishing was now going to involve grouse and deer hunting. Their many hunting adventures led to a strong bond for each and a mutual love for hunting. The stories are told and illustrated with genuine enthusiasm and realism, taking us into the forest and providing a real feeling of participation. Jim learns how to fire a rifle without flinching, where and how to hunt for grouse and deer, how to train a grouse dog, what wood ticks are, and the value of a compass, especially when lost. Jim and his buddies go grouse hunting and end up shooting chimneys and each others caps. Many trips to the hunting camp are enjoyed where Uncle Willy tells stories about buck fever. After being misplaced in the family for 7 decades, Jim's dad's 30-40 Krag is uncovered and Jim is excited to be hunting with it. At 92 years old, Uncle Willy has a keen memory for their hunting experiences. He says, Jim, I remember when you bagged your first grouse with your single shot 22 on that old logging road by Black Crick. I was ready with my 20 GA in case you missed. But you didn't flinch and you didn't miss. That was a good shot.
