WHERE DID THE DEER GO? THE STORY OF THE OLD WORLD AND NEW WORLD CULTURE CLASHES THAT CREATED THE AMERICAN INDIANS' FIRST GENUINE ECONOMY

This book contains information most people, even deer hunters, did not know. The book explains how America once had plenty of deer herds, and centuries later, had very few deer , to the point of extinction, and then, in the 19th century, gained deer in abundance once again.

The book is filled with state maps depicting WHERE imported deer originated and WHERE the deer were placed. It even list the states that did not import any other sub species whitetail within it's borders, like South Carolina.

In the first chapter of the book, Rusty wants you to feel like you are there with him, in 1966 at age 11,  when a perfect racked, 8 pt buck jumped high, out of a thick honeysuckle patch and into an open soybean field..."Buck fever" was real for Rusty as he was frozen at first in his stance, gripping his heavy, bolt action Mossberg shotgun loaded with only 6 shot.

It was pure serendipity, that Rusty once ended up living in Bibb County, Alabama for a few years, where he searched out and discovered the first deer pens or "deer corrals"  that were used to hold the first, imported North Carolina deer, into Alabama counties. Later, Alabama, like many other states listed in this book, imported deer (plus other species of ruminants) into their states and the Lacy law that had previously been implemented in 1900, was heavy handed Federally reinforced, with Game Wardens, with immense power and amendments later added to the Lacy Law.

But this book is much more as it goes into the amazing culture clashes of newly arrived Europeans old the "old world" and the already established native Indian tribes in America and the fact (that many historians fail to mention)  of mixed cultures created that for decades, thrived together in the deepest south of America. However, President Andrew Jackson, "old hickory," with the support of the rest of the young Republic of America, put down the American with several bloody "Indian Wars."

    Got one last year for Fathers Day last year and this year i got two more, just in case. My wife took ours to our hunting club last year and left in a shooting house and by time we found it to read, the book was trashed! But I heard the book was really good! lol. It was stained and smelled like whiskey, as it should, as it should! DON'T LEAVE IN A SHOOTING HOUSE IN A HUNTING CLUB FULL OF REDNECKS!
